I signed up to participate in the Waverunner Quilt Along at Bumble Beans. Yesterday, the first set of instructions was posted. I'm not sure if my Waverunner button works, but it looks pretty. Sometimes I have a problem getting the links to work when I copy buttons. If the button doesn't work, you can click here to check it out.
Such pretty solid quilt fabric. This is not my stash OR scraps. Previously, I have not used solid fabrics for quilting, so I ordered these beautiful Kona cotton fabrics. Now, I'm supposed to take my rotary cutter and slice into this pretty fabric without a ruler???!!!?? That's what V at Bumble Beans says is the first step in making the Waverunner blocks. So, that's what I did!!! Gulp...
I know it's hard to tell, but I DID cut my strips wavy per instructions. Here are the first strips hanging on the design wall before elimination. My backing fabric is backordered, so I pinned a printout of the design. It is from Amy Butler's new LOVE collection. This is as far as I got today.
I did do a little fabric shopping to supplement the quilt I am making for Margaret's Hope Chest. If you remember, I had a problem with backordered fabric and lower quality fabric. I am prewashing the fabric at the moment and hope to complete the quilt top tomorrow.
I am still looking for someone to play along with my Pay It Forward. If you are interested, click here or leave a comment on today's post. Have an amazing day!!!
