I'm almost too embarrassed to show a picture of the waverunner blocks I sewed. But... I have this thing about including pictures on blog posts....and....it is what I worked on. So, here are the first few waverunner blocks I made. I am hoping practice makes perfect, and I have a chance to redeem myself with new and improved blocks soon.
With my daughter's quilt, I'm thinking a no piecing design. I laid out a wide piece of Moda solid fabric....taped it down like I was going to baste it...pinned all the "diamond" cut outs in what I hope is a straight pattern. My plan is to zig zag around each diamond....sew honey bun strips together for a border...find a cool green fabric for the backing (you can't tell, but there are green diamond fabrics)....and kick it up a notch with gorgeous quilting (not by me).
Do you think that will work? I really need to do something about the lighting when I am photographing quilts. The extra items you see are pin cushions....not extra fabric appliques ;-)) Also, the top and bottom will be trimmed to match proportions. Have an amazing day!!!
