Week 1 – Joyful Meadows QAL – Cut our Fabric

Good Morning! It’s the first week of the Joyful Meadows Quilt Along! Yay!
This week we will be cutting all of our fabric. So make sure to check and decide if you want to make your flying geese using the 1 at 1 time method or the 4 at 1 time method (made slightly larger than needed and then trimmed to size). If you are unsure of how you want to make the flying geese, I would suggest getting some scrap fabric and trying both methods out!

Since this quilt has a lot of separation from the background fabric, it can be made in 2 to 8 colors. With my version I will be making a 2 colored one this time. So I will cut all of my A-G pieces from my floral fabric and then all my H pieces from my white fabric.

CHECK HERE FOR PATTERN CORRECTONS

I’m so excited to see what fabrics you have picked! Make sure to share your photos this week in the Facebook Group or over on Instagram with the hashtag #JoyfulMeadowsQAL or tag me.
