    I am so proud of this one. Its a simple design (no pattern - I just winged it) and the individual blocks in the nine-patch larger blocks were made using a "Layered Waves" technique I learned from a book by Karen Eckmeier I picked up on my trip to Sedona this summer.

    I had so much fun making this quilt. Its was actually done about a month ago but my kitty claimed it and made it hard to do the binding. :P

    I've never seen that design before. Was it difficult to do? Your quilt is gorgeous and I love your fabric choices.

    I love the quilting pattern. It makes the back very interesting!

    Thank you so much. I picked the colors but DH chose which ones to use in the lattce and borders. I would have chosen different ones but hey, its hit quilt.

    The layered waves are so easy! To hard to describe in a post though. I made sheets of layered waves and cut them down into 4.5" blocks. Then I assembled the blocks into nine patches. It didn't take long at all. After that it was just a matter of building the lattice and border around everything to make a quilt big enough for DH to snuggle in.

    I'm not much into the final quilting part of things so I think this is going to be my regular pattern. I'm trying to emulate the effects of a pebble dropped in a river - specifically, a pebble dropped in each of the four corners. Its not as nice as I was hoping for - I wanted more intersections and regular spacing but I think with practice (and better mathematics) I'll get there.
