New Wave Quilt


I looked at my list of favorite quilts and my future to-do lists and I realized that most of them are from Elizabeth Hartman.  I even own her book which I flip through all the time.  I totally fell in love with the New Wave Quilt the first second I saw it.  And as soon as I got the Andrea Victoria fabric back in July... I knew that was the projected I wanted to use it for.

My plan was to finish this before the weather got warm... sadly it just went into the 70s when I took this picture.. I might have been to late... but I don't care - I love it so much!


The back is not as tilted as it looks in this photo.  All of the solids used are Kona.  White, Azure, and the back is Caribbean (my favorite!).  The fabric is Riley Blake - My Minds Eye - Andrea Victoria and I used Warm and White for the batting.


I used the Darlene Zimmerman's "Fat Cats" ruler as suggested on Oh, Fransson!'s blog and added a few columns and rows to make this bigger.  Final size is about 76" x 68".


I pressed all of my seams open.  I love how flat they lay.



(I. love. turquoise.)





I did a meandering free motion quilting all over this.  I feel like the quilting part took forever - I had to take so many breaks because this thing was super heavy to push through my machine!



Voilà!

  5. What thread did you use for your quilting? I can't see the color on either the white or teal, which leads me to believe you used the invisible poly thread. Just curious as I really love the colors here and would like to make a similar quilt for my bed! Thanks!

  6. It's just white thread! I think it was before I switched over to Aurifil, so it was when I was using poly Gütermann. The white thread does show up on the turquoise back, its just hard to tell from the pictures.
