It’s time for another pattern preview from our Fall release of new patterns that previewed at the International Quilt Market in Fall 2019.
I absolutely love this pattern that Carl designed. The 15″ block itself is quite simple but when twelve 15″ blocks are stitched together to make the 60″ x 60″ quilt, the secondary patterns created are magical and it’s pretty difficult to decipher where the actual block starts and stops.
Selecting fabrics for the Waterfall pattern is super simple too. Just 2-1/2 yards of a neutral background fabric plus twelve 3/8 yard cuts of other fabrics – the twelve fabrics should be separated into four color groups with each group containing three fabrics.
Cutting and stitching each block together is a breeze and as long as your 1/4″ seam is consistent – you shouldn’t have any worries about creating this simple block and finishing off a super simple quilt for yourself or a loved one in no time. I find once I get stitching this quilt – I cannot stop – the block is fun to make and I can’t wait to see the finished quilt put together.
Our first version of this new pattern was made for Island Batik using our second signature collection,”Jewel Box” designed especially for Colourwerx by Kathy Brett Engle.
We also made a Cool and a Warm version out of Kaffe Fassett Collective Classic fabrics for our friends at Free Spirit Fabrics.
Here’s another one I can’t wait to make using Martha Negley’s rich and super saturated “Veggies” collection from again our friends at Free Spirit Fabrics.
We also made one using the Good Vibes Only collection designed by Sassafras Lane for Windham Fabrics. This version graces the cover of our pattern!
And here are a few more virtual versions that we submitted to various fabric companies using a selection of gorgeous fabrics from Figo fabrics, beiges and taupes from Windham Fabrics and also a Christmas themed fabric from Michael Miller Fabrics (how appropriate considering the day I am writing this post 🙂 !!
And also be sure to check back into our Colourwerx shop as we will have kits for most of these versions coming real soon!
And of course, by all means – please do send us a picture of your completed Waterfall quilts – we always love to see and share all of your beautiful creations made using our Colourwerx patterns!
Carl and I are so thankful for your support and wish you happy and bright quilting always! And also Merry Christmas and the happiest of holidays to you all! Until your next colour fix and see you in 2020 ~ L&C xxoo
