Part 1 of the Big Leap Sew Along - cutting instructions

Today I'm providing you with the cutting instructions for your Jelly Roll friendly Triple Chain quilt. A version that finishes at 82" x 82" and a smaller lap size version that finishes at 56" square.

Cutting instructions for the 82" version are provided in the tab above found HERE.
Cutting instructions for the lap size version are found HERE.
They will remain on my blog for FREE thru February 29, 2016 - LEAP DAY.

I am providing a few picture examples to help those in need of visual aid thru the cutting process. Click on any of these pictures to enlarge them if necessary.
Your background strip sets should look like this (before sub-cutting)

FYI: ALL 2.5" x wof strips (cut selvage to selvage) will be sub-cut in HALF along the fold line. this includes your jelly roll strips and background strips.

Set B background fabrics cut and ready for sewing:

Next Sunday, on February 14th, I will post Part 2 of the Sew Along instructions. I've created a blog link up below. If you wish to share your fabric choices or the start of your Sew Along journey feel free to link up below this week. Don't have a blog but wish to share? Send your picture/s to me via email and I will post them here as well.

Wishing you all a Happy & Productive week!

  1. I had to order my background fabric. I hope I get it before next Sunday. I will be cutting my jelly roll this week. This is going to be fun.

  2. Ok, I made the committing move and opened my Jelly Roll :) Any advice for multicolor strips? I am using primarily blue strips and yellow strips with bits of pink and green. Should we mix the colors within groups A and B?

  3. Well, I've copied the instructions and would like to cut some 2.5" scraps. I'll see how far I get :0)

  4. Off to a fun start! Everything cut and separated for A & B sets and in time to watch Downton Abbey...

  5. You are a generous teacher! Looking forward to seeing all of the great quilts that come from this project.

  6. Yay! I was waiting for this. I'll search the fabric stash and see what I can come up with. If I commit then I will be making the smaller version.

    Thanks for doing this Doreen!

  7. I am not doing this but I'll have fun seeing everyone's! :)

  8. How wonderful of you to have this sew along !
    I will not be able to participate but look forward to watching everyones progress.
