Last week I promised to get back to my UFO “Waterfall Quilt.” Well, I’ve made some progress with it:

As you can see, I’ve added a couple rows (and I obviously need to get a larger design wall that my pieces can stick to!) More importantly, I think, is that I removed pieces that I felt didn’t really work, either due to the patterning of the material, or more likely, the color flow wasn’t right. Actually, now that I look at the photograph, I see a few other pieces that I’ll probably switch out, since they don’t have quite the right value. I call this my waterfall quilt as I wanted the curved pieces to make it feel like water trickling down, as well as the blues and greens to represent the water and surrounding forest.
I thought you might like to find out how I do the curved inserts which I’m working on adding to all the blocks. Believe it or not, it’s a fairly simple process. Certainly simpler than doing the video… so please excuse me if my videography needs a little perfecting!
