Waterfall QAL: Week 4

I'm still behind the official schedule, but I'm making progress on my Waterfall quilt. Week 4 included cutting up the strips and making the first 3 blocks (for the baby size quilt).

My lights feel not so light to me, but I'm happy with how these blocks came out and I have stacks lined up for some of my darkest blocks next so you'll see the value contrast as I continue sewing. I think I also didn't follow directions for the strip piecing and may pick out a few seams to shuffle things around so I will have some lighter strips and some darker strips.

All the details of the Quilt Along are on Amy's Creative Side. You can see my earlier progress in my Weeks 1 & 2 and Week 3 posts.

      Thank you, Yvonne. It felt so good to pull this scrappy palette out of my stash and start using it. ;-) The formula of the pattern is great of planned scrappiness. And I'm at the stage where the blocks go together so quickly I've stitched 8 blocks in the last 24 hours. (Just need to press seams so I can share them tomorrow!)

      Indeed! And that's the important part. That's pretty much the summary of my quilting in general. It takes a while, but I'm making progress. That may be the curse of having so many projects going at once. ;-) Thanks for visiting, Anja.
