Today, we are going to focus on prepping and cutting all of the pieces needed to create the Sugar Bloom quilt top. Since we are using jelly rolls, this should go fairly fast. Let’s get to work.

Sugar Bloom Block Prep

Supplies needed for lesson 1:

Fabric Preparation:

It's time to start the pre work on our Sugar Bloom Block quilt pattern. Today is all about cutting so that next time we can get straight to sewing.

 

I like to start by starching my solid fabrics before cutting. Trust me, this will make life so much easier later since the fabric pieces are small.

Cutting Instructions

From white fabric cut:

  • 4 rectangles 2 1/2″ x 41″
  • 4 rectangles 2 1/2″ x 28″
  • 4 rectangles 2 1/2″ x 16″
  • 12 rectangles 2 1/2″ x 12 1/2″ *
  • 26 rectangles 1″ wide by full width of fabric/WOF.

*adjusted to simplify 4/30/17

The most efficient way to cut your fabric is to cut 13 jelly roll strips into 2 pieces 1″ wide. This will leave 1/2″ x full WOF of waste.
