My New Wave quilt top is complete! I used Oh Fransson!'s new wave quilt tutorial featured on her website, and adjusted the number of columns/rows until my top measured 43 inches x 47 inches.
I also purchased the Darlene Zimmerman "Fat Cats" ruler, as Elizabeth mentioned instead of the plastic template. I found the ruler at Joann's, and when I purchased it, it was 50% off, but even with a 40% coupon, I dont think the ruler is more than $7 or $8.
I wasn't originally planning on using the brown fabric on the top and bottom, but I realized as I started piecing the columns together, that my "guesstimate" measurements were falling short of how big I wanted this quilt to be. In order to keep the symmetry, I added a brown row to both the top and bottom.
I was able to get outside today while there was still some daylight left and snap these pictures, usually by the time I come home from work and get to a picture taking point, the sun has long ago set.
Hopefully the quilt backs will come together in the next few days, so I can start quilting this and the mini stacked coins quilt. I'm thinking one of these quilts will feature some loopy quilting for a change of pace! Stay tuned!!
