The abstracted flow of fresh water evokes the sensation of new snowmelt emerging from the ice and cascading down mountainsides to the sea. On-point ombré prints persuade the eye to follow the movement of the waterfall in a dreamy, organic passage. Variegated straight line quilting emphasizes the direction of streams. A joyful snapshot of spring.
Cubist Waterfall is a modern lap sized quilt or wall hanging, 46" x 60". The cover version was made from Hoffman Waves Ombre Stripe collection fabrics in three colorways with wool batting and variegated threads.
This pattern uses large half-square triangle blocks on point, strategically cut and placed to create a vision of tumbling motion. Blocks may be cut directly from ombré or striped fabric, or strip pieced. Detailed cutting and layout diagrams specific to ombré/striped prints are described and illustrated in the instructions. Pressing, quilting, and binding recommendations are included.
