I took an old fashion pattern "Waves" and thought this was a perfect way to celebrate summer. I grew up on the lake for a short time (Lake St. Clair) and loved it. So first come picking the fabric and then cutting and piecing and ironing
Then it was cutting those lovely little corners off... in building this quilt I realized that I didn't have enough wave fabric.. back to checking out the stash...found something!! WHEW!!
above you can see the fabric that I didn't have enough of all those wonderful waves..the off white fabric has little dots that looks like rain drops hitting the water and then we have those triangle as the waves.
This was all built in a day machine quilting is very simple I think the pattern shows enough movement...but if the receiver wants to quilt more in the water blocks they can.. I will not be offended.. I still am not the best machinequilter. The quilt is 18in square..hope she likes it.. this is summer to me.
I have lots of photos uploaded but don't want to overload the people on dialup so will post more tomorrow...just glad my mojo is back.. now i have to make one more project and then I am not signing up for anything els..nothing!! I have so many projects on the go right now.. as you all know.
