New Wave quilt in progress

Oh hello, it’s Wednesday again! This time last week didn’t I make some stupid rash promise that by today I’d have one quilt totally finished and the top for the other one complete? Clearly I was thinking about a world where a week has more than 7 days in it, because I have not even touched the Triple Dresden since last Wednesday!

There has been some good progress on the New Wave quilt though and it seems the simpler I go with designs the more I love them, and this is no exception, I’m already trying to think of an excuse to make one for me!

As I mentioned in previous posts the colours in this quilt were all picked to exactly match the interior decor and existing quilts in my parents house, all with the aid of a Kona Colour Chart. I really don’t know how (or why) I survived without it. The amount of fabric I ordered online that turned up and was slightly different from what I was expecting, now everything matches perfectly.

I mentioned before that they were hard to get in the UK, but if you are still after one simplysolids.co.uk are stocking them, although they seem to sell very quickly! Not only do I now have one, but my mum and my sister have also bought them. (My husband would say we’re a bit like that anyway, if one has something, then the other two have to get it too!)

Anyway, until next week, more inspiring quilting projects to be found by clicking on the link below…

This is a beautiful quilt top! I love how you matched the colors to their decor. I need to get a color chart, I am always just guessing and that doesn’t always work so well!

Oh I love those colours! Stumbled across The Bullet Proof Wives on twitter and found you via them – so lovely to find some bloggers from my home town 🙂
