I found this ocean waves quilt and thought I would try a sample block and see if I liked it or not.(I like it) The books directions uses a 8'" block in the center. But to use my green triangles I needed to adjust and use a 6" center. Means I'll be sewing a few extra blocks.
I don't know if you can see in the picture the quilt has lime green triangles that form a square when the blocks are put together. I liked this I love bright green. But my quilt will have a lot of greens and the squares would get lost and not show up.
So I'm going to use this red. Although I like the squares I hope It won't look funny because on 2 side the red is out of pattern. Hope it doesn't look like a mistake. This quilt is for sure going to have that home made old antiquey look because no way are all those points going to line up and HST sometimes can get a little wonky.
I copied the directions so I don't lose them. Thought I'd show this. Don't know how everyone else keeps track of their quilt plans. After I make a few more blocks I add my own notes/hints and shortcuts Knowing it may take years to finish this quilt. And I forget.
