Hi Everybody!  Just wanted to drop a quick post to let you know how much I LOVE the look of the 'Ocean Waves' blocks that have been posted so far!  I just can't wait to see them in person and get them all put together -- I'm already working on the units for the border:)

A couple of clarifying points:

Several eagle-eyed people have sent emails noticing that the layout of the inspiration quilt and the layout within the actual instructions are different.  Don't worry about sewing your sub-blocks together; I'll sort that out and sew them together when I decide on a layout.  And, please, if you're running short on time or losing your mind with all of the HSTs, just send two sub-blocks instead of the full four required for a block.  I love the pattern but admit to a few pangs of guilt over the size of the block!!

Then, Jennifer mentioned that she'd had some confusion over the "light, medium, dark" blues.  This will likely make some of you who are good with colour cringe, but I actually just cut up a bunch of blues of varying values and paid not one bit of attention to where they landed within the block.  I'm getting a nice scrappy look and I feel perfectly happy with it.  So, particularly if the HSTs are already driving you bonkers, please don't stress too much over fabric placement!

Thank you all so much!!  It's going to be just beautiful....so excited:)  xo Meg

  1. Meg, Thanks for your clarifying points. I must admit that March has been busy. I am hoping to start on your block after Easter. I have my blue's picked out and I am excited about getting going :) Sorry for the delay. I will get two done for sure and see how smoothly it goes. Thanks for a great project. Cheers, Shauna
