I was inspired after I finishing my last 6 blocks to continue and finish my Waterfall quilt top. I started by putting all the blocks up on the design wall. With this type of project a person could move blocks around for a long time, but I opted to stick with the initial layout and get to sewing. I made just one switch as I was trimming and sewing the blocks together.
I'm so happy with the colors in this project, all chosen from my shelves a year ago when I started the project. The beauty in this pattern comes from having a range of values. I used the black and white photo below to check that my fabrics had a wide range of values. This is a great trick for assessing value when you are using prints and/or multiple colors.
The Waterfall quilt pattern is by Amy Ellis of Amy's Creative Side. My version is the (generous) baby quilt size, 45" x 54", which we will use as a small lap quilt. I love that it's a pattern you could make multiple times and they'd all be a little different.
I'm participating in the 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge with Cheryl of muppin.com.
This is really cool. I like the black and white trick!
Thanks, Jenn! I use it all the time!
I like how it turned out.
Thank you, Erin. I'm really happy with it and I look forward to getting it all quilted up. I'm considering some topographical line inspired quilting.
