This quilt is for the new baby of some very good friends of ours, one of whom happened to live with us for a good chunk of last year. Luckily he was home with his wife enough to take care of business, if you know what I mean.
I was really inspired by this quilt, made by sewing different sized wedges of fabric together. I reined the technique in a bit to make these somewhat even waves.
To piece the top I cut wedges of random widths but (roughly) the same length then sewed them together in sets of eight. By alternating the orientation of these "blocks" I ended up with the waves.
I completely guessed at the amount of fabric I would need and ended up with the perfect amount for four rows with three blocks left over. I used the leftovers to make this arch on the back.
The label was made using this iLightbox technique and is sewn into the binding.
I was all ready to send this out but now I think I need to share it at the next LAMQG meeting!
