Ocean Waves Quilt Top


Despite the lack of rain in my neck of the woods the hydrangeas in my yard are in full bloom.  They are absolutely gorgeous.  The colors are similar to those in the fabrics I've used for my Ocean Wave Quilt.  I finished the top yesterday!  Behold:

  
I didn't follow a pattern, but sketched out my ideas on graph paper.  For someone lacking a math gene, this has proven challenging!  However, I'm a pro at making half square triangles and thought they work well as the border around the Wave Block I designed.  The top measures 42" X 42."  I'm really happy with it.  I purchased the back and binding fabric and will hopefully be able to get started on it ASAP.  I've used the back fabric as the binding on all my quilts so far, but for this one, I'm using a different one.


They are both from Hoffman.  The darker one (on top) is called, Cabana.  I'll use this for the binding.  The lighter fabric, for the back, is called, Montego.  Aren't they awesome!?  Of course I'll have to quilt it first!  Any ideas?  

Have a great weekend everyone!
