I started my Wavelength quilt. I’m going to do dark teal/aqua on the inside and flow out to light aqua/white.
I printed out the 100 plus paper piecing patterns that I will need for the lap size design. I’ve got about 3 rows/columns complete. While working on those rows I have realized that I will not have enough fabric color variation to do the plan as I want. Though I LOVE what it looks like right now!
Darn – that means I will have to do some fabric shopping. Tell me it isn’t so. It’s just so
burdensome exciting! :-). I have found that it is difficult to determine aqua/teal colors online. I found some fabrics on Etsy that I thought would work for the darker teals that I currently need. The color states teal or peacock and the photos showed a color that would flow well in this design. They were delivered today and are more of a green variety than teal and will not work as intended.
I still love these fabrics but they won’t work for the intended color flow of this quilt. But, you just can’t go wrong with some Bike Path, Urban Mod, Comma, Grand Hotel, Felicity, or Chicopee. There is a lot of yumminess in this bundle.
The 3 fabrics on the right, in this next photo, are already going to work in the quilt and were what I was trying to match. The values are just a little bit off.
I’m going to have to actually go to the store with some scraps to match up the colors better. I don’t think the online thing is going to work as well unless I decide to get more of the patterns/colors that I already have.
I’m excited to continue working on this. More progress to follow as long as I can get the fabric thing worked out. 🙂
