I had already planned on making a quilt using Oh Fransson's New Wave pattern and the idea of a gradient came from the gorgeous Nest fabric by Valori Wells. While Nest didn't make it on the front of the quilt, it did make up the majority of the back, making this quilt hard to pick which side is my favorite.
The quilting idea was a group effort. I had finished the top last November and it sat until early February as I waited for the time to work on it. I was at a loss as to how to quilt this one, so I bounced some ideas off of friends and finally came up with this design. I straight line quilted on the inside of the white sashing, just 1/4 inch in on each side. Then for waves I echo quilted the wave once about and inch in, so that the waves came to a point where they met. Then I quilted straight lines diagonally about an inch apart in the waves. The diagonals were perpendicular to one side of the wave, and each wave alternated directions in the diagonals. It was quilted with Guttermann thread, this was before I discovered Aurifil.
The binding was a print from Wrenly, another collection from Valori Wells.
This quilt is the first one for me and I am going to love using it... that is until Miss H is big enough to steal it from me.
