My Second New Wave Quilt

New Wave Quilt

I'm so excited to share this one! I made it for my awesome friend Kacey's birthday this week. Isn't it purdy? I wish I had a better picture of it. Well, I kinda have one as the banner for my blog, but when I cropped it to fit I cropped the original so, yeah. I asked her to send me a pic of it in her apt and she's better at taking pictures than I am so hopefully I will be saved. It was hard sending this one off. Like, I contemplated making something else to send off at last minute but I really did make this one just for her so I sent it.

So I think this is my new fav pattern from Oh Fransson! I added two add'l rows so the waves go up instead of across. I did the same to the first one I made, and I like the final size. I think next time I'll add those add'l rows and also two more colors and make it even bigger. I mean, seriously, how could you NOT love even more new wave quiltness?

This weekend I'm thinking more squares. I love quilt tops with squares. My husband makes of me (in a good, encouraging way) because I am afraid of narrow points. All in good time I guess, right?
