Wiley Way in Marine Too December 18 2013, 0 Comments

This version of our Wiley Way pattern is a little bit different than the two versions that come with the pattern. We used six focus fabrics featuring Marine Too from Birch Fabrics. 


We alternated the zigzags in this order: 2 focus - 1 background - 1 focus - 1 background - 1 focus - 1 background - 2 focus. We tried to place two focus fabrics next to one another that were different enough that they would not blend when you step back. The turtles and the fish do this well.


My Mom quilted this one using a rippling water motif in the background and alternated bubbles and lines in the focus fabrics. 


I love the color scheme and adorable sea creatures. Look at those adorable love whales, submarines, turtles, anchors and crabs! Too stinking cute!


There is a large negative space full of background in the upper left hand corner of Wiley Way. I like to add a little bit of binding detail to add some pop up there. For this quilt, I used 3 squares of solid teal, red and cheddar. 

If you make this pattern or any other of our Sassafras Lane Designs patterns, send us an email! We would love to feature you and the quilt on here!
