I’m done cutting fabric for my Ocean Waves quilt. Well, except the borders and binding, but I always cut those once the middle of the top is done.
I divided my colors into light and dark fabrics, which will alternate to make the pattern pop. I have a lot I’d consider “medium,” which can really go either way based on what they are next to.
I took a b&w photo to make sure I was on track, and there were 2 that stood out. I swapped them out and now I’m pretty happy with those. I’ll have to try not to put mediums next to each other, but I think it’s going to turn out pretty well.
I had mostly 1/2 yard cuts of fabric, some fat quarters, and some scraps, so that is why there are more lights in shorter stacks.
These are all hand-dyed fabrics by Cherrywood. They have a sueded look, but they are cotton.
The big board is a blocking board for knitting. It’s useful for ironing - it’s huge and nice and firm. I have it set up on my folding table. Despite the grid, it’s not for cutting, though. :)
