Wavelength Develops

In case you didn't see it yesterday, here is the final layout for my newest scrap slab triangles quilt, Wavelength.

The colors in this photo are as true as I can get with a photograph. If you want anything truer to life, you'll have to come to visit me at my house.

Here's the inspiration for the quilt. It's a baby toy, and just goes to prove you can find inspiration anywhere. You just have to look. If you read my blog regularly, then you've heard me say this over and over and over. If all you've done is just READ, then I want you to keep your eyes open today and really NOTICE when something catches your attention. You'll probably be walking past it before it hits you. Turn around. Take a picture. Try to notice more. And stop and look whenever that little alarm goes off next.

I sewed the blocks together that form the two vertical rows on the far left, but haven't sewn the two of them to each other yet. I'm eager to see if my arrangement of the black and white side triangles works.

(I'm writing this while watching the Golden Globe Awards. I've just listened to Oprah Winfrey's amazing speech. It's here. If you didn't hear it live, go see it. Really.)

If you want to make your own Scrap Slab Triangle quilt, you can find my tutorial here, at my Etsy shop.

The slabs are looking great. Thanks so much for the link to Oprah's speech. Powerful, from her heart, and she spoke to everyone on every level, I hope it has far felt effects world wide.

Another great slabs quilt! I appreciate you sharing your inspiration and process. I think that when you open up to every day inspirations, your world becomes fuller and more interesting. I see the need to record and organize those tidbits.
And thanks for the link to Oprahs!
