    Waterfall Heart Quilt

    I made this quilt from a kit, however I did not follow the directions! I was going to go crazy if I sewed each 2 inch square together one at a time. So I bought some fusible 2 inch grid interfacing and ironed the squares on and then sewed the rows together. This was a much easier process for me. Not sure if I will do it again, but I like the results.

    It is lovely and I think I would have done the same thing with the fusing!

    I love your quilt! Beautiful but I think the technique is known as watercolor not waterfall. You did an awesome job on this beauty and ingenious of you to go out and get the fusible grid interfaceing to make assembly more streamline. Especially when color placement is so crucial in watercolor quilts.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
