Waterfall Throw Quilt in Moda Grunge Quilt Pattern!

I'm excited to share the new Waterfall quilt pattern today!  Waterfall is the latest Busy Hands Quilts pattern and is stash friendly.



COLORWASH OMBRE FABRIC SELECTION

Waterfall is all about letting the fabric shine!  I love the gradating ombre colorwash effect in this quilt design.  The colors just blend, mesh, meld {so many words!} together in a soothing way.

It's easier to get this effect than you think.  Here's how you create it yourself:
  • Grab the pattern.
  • Select two colorways that meld together.
  • Gather five hues of each of the two colorways, ranging from light to dark.
  • Add in a very light for the block centers and a very dark for the sashing.
The pattern gives specific instructions for fabric placement in each block, so it's easy peasy to keep each fabric in its place.


FABRICS USED IN THIS QUILT

This quilt is made entirely with Moda Grunge Dots and Seeing Stars fabric, including the sashing, backing, and binding.  The exact fabric numbers and names and where they are placed are included in the quilt pattern.




LOG CABIN DESIGN

Waterfall is a log cabin quilt pattern set on point with pieced setting triangles which make the design flow out to the edges of the quilt for a stunning effect.  The setting triangles for each side and the four corners are all different, but don't let that scare you!  Directions are given for exactly how to make this happen.  Easy peasy!



LONGARM QUILTING

Waterfall was sewn by Joanne, one of my quilt top makers/pattern testers.  The quilting is Tempest, done on my Handi Quilter Fusion with ProStitcher in medium blue thread.

I've been venturing out to quilting with colors other than white, gray, and black, and loving it!  I'm working toward the second cone of medium blue as it's been perfect for so many quilts recently.  I'm also learning to make sure I have the perfect color of quilting thread on hand before the day I plan to quilt it!  😅



MODA GRUNGE DOT QUILT BACK

The backing on Waterfall is also Moda Grunge Dot extra wide fabric.  Just so fun!! 💙💙💙



WATERFALL QUILT SIZES

Waterfall includes two sizes - Throw and Queen.  I aim for as many sizes as possible in every quilt pattern, and only two were possible with this block size, unfortunately.



NO SEAMS TO MATCH UP

Waterfall has no seams to match up at any point, other than making sure blocks are lined up when the sashed rows are joined together.  How sweet is that?!?  






Look at that yummy quilted texture, crisp black Grunge binding, and colorwash colors!  I'm really happy with how this quilt turned out.  😊
