Waves of Progress

I’ve been making a little progress on the Wavelength quilt – which is designed by Lee Heinrich of Freshly Pieced. I am putting this together in sections/rows.  So I’m cutting the fabric and piecing by row then I’m setting them out to see if I like the placement of the colors before I sew them together.  (I am removing the paper before I sew the squares to each other.) I was able to complete this medium teal row and am moving on to a lighter teal for the next one.    I only have 3 more rows left to complete which equates to 53 paper-pieced squares to finish.  I’ve already cut and prepped the papers for the next row.

Each row brings a new dimension to this quilt and it’s fabulousness just shines through.  And I’m really enjoying how pretty my scrap basket is becoming.  I will definitely have to figure out something super cool to do with these scraps.  Suggestions??

Stash Enhancement:

It is very difficult for me to resist a Craftsy sale, especially when they have one of their big, huge ones.  This last weekend was no exception.  My favorite item that caused a decrease in my checkbook balance was a quilt kit that used some Cotton & Steel fabric.  The kit came with 15 fat quarters and 5 yds of fabric (background and binding) and the pattern shown above for under $50!!  You can get that kit here.  (It was still on sale as of the date of this post.). I may not use that pattern as is but I couldn’t pass up the deal on the fabric.  This is not the first time I have bought a kit just for the fabric.  So don’t just glance over the kit section. You may actually find something awesome!  Like this super awesome fabric!  I’m very happy with this purchase. I’m about to start the Twisted Blossom quilt-along with Jenny of Sew Kind of Wonderful.  I already have the Quick Curve Ruler and I picked up the Metro Twist pattern so I am all ready to go and these C&S prints may just be perfect for it.  Now that I think about it – the Metro Twist pattern may be just the thing for my Text Me Mini Quilt Swap quilt.  Hmmm…

    I love the fabrics you are using for your quilt. You could always make a Chinese Coin type scrap quilt with the left overs.
    Great deal on the C & S fabric. I’ve never thought of buying a kit just for the fabric. I’ll have start looking at kits on sale now. THanks

  2. I love your Wavelength quilt. I’ve never seen that pattern before. And those colors are right up my alley!

    Your wavelength quilt is looking beautiful!!

  4. Your wave quilt is so pretty. Because every block is the same and it is paper pieced, I would only be able to stay interested in short waves. Great progress!
