Another one down

I finished this quilt top.

new wave quilt top

Calling it Blue Wave and Emma called dibbs on it. For her “new” room (Sarah’s old room) she wants to paint the walls blue. It’ll be a while until we get to it though. We have to do Meaghan’s room first. 😉 I’ll piece the back from some of the scraps (not much) and use a LOT of what. No idea on the binding or the quilting. I would *love* to do an allover stippling or waves, but my skill level is not there.

I also finished this top last Friday, but didn’t get a recent pic.

All that needed to be done was sew two borders on the side. The blocks had all been sewn together, and the first two borders were on. They are also black. I will back this with black fabric and quilt it with black thread. No idea on the pattern yet though.

  1. Oh, Emma is a smart girl. That Blue Wave quilt is GORGEOUS! I really like the other one, too. It reminds me of all the rainbow stuff I had when I was a little girl. 🙂

  2. You are on fire! Love it!

  3. The 2nd one reminds me of one my MIL made for us when we first got married. We still use it, nothing compares! And it’s the right weight, not too light, not too heavy. The colors will eventually come back in fashion, it’s hot pink and teal instead of rainbow stripes:-)
