As Promised, here is part 3 of the Just Wave saga.
After writing the post for part two, I did some simple piecing with some HST blocks that I had in a plastic baggie - they are 2" finished pieces.
But the muse kept kicking at me. I had to try adjusting the plan to see if I could make it work as expected.
I had some 2 1/2" jelly roll strips handy so I picked 4 that had already had pieces cut off of them. Then I cut four background fabric strips -chocolate brown since it played nicely with the strips. I sewed the strip sets alternating them. Cut the piece in half again. And for next time, I will cut that on a wavy line too! Then I turned one piece top to bottom and layered them again both facing up. I cut them into three sections -wavy line, free form rotary cut. And I sewed them as I described in yesterday's post. I didn't want a straight seam down the center so I overlapped the edges and cut a slightly wavy line through both pieces. Yeah, I should have taken a picture of that. (oops)
Here is a graphic I made to hopefully make that a little clearer than mud
Then I joined them with a final wavy seam.
Surprise! A lot of the seam lines match - not all but way better than before.
I think this satisfied the muse so that I can go back to my UFOs. Unless another squirrel runs by and I have to chase it too. I think my spirit animal is a squirrel hunting dog. Ha ha.
