I used nine DS prints and added three from my stash. I had always wanted to try making the New Wave pattern and I enjoyed the process. The only thing that was difficult was lining up the columns so that they would be flush with the pieces above and below them. The best way I can describe it: have you ever made bias binding? Do you know how you have to have a teeny triangle sticking out on both ends of the pieces so that it will line up right? That is what you have to do throughout this whole quilt and it is quite fussy.
I backed it with one of my favorite prints from the DS collection - "Modern Floral" and bound it in the gingham stripe. I straight-lined quilted it with my walking foot and was pretty happy with how it turned out. Thanks to Monet for hand-binding it during our car-ride up to Kennebunk.
