Falling Water

Designers at Honey Bee Quilt Store created Falling Water for Quilt Sampler® Spring/Summer 2012 magazine. A beautiful batik blend cascades down a wall hanging of Four-Patches and dimensional triangle-squares.

Machine-Quilting Details

Angela McCorkle machine-quilted 1/4” inside the straight edges of each triangle unit and added curved diamonds in each cream batik 2-1/2” square. She quilted the blue batik squares with a feather motif and filled the vertical cream batik areas with feathered vines and dense stippling. In the open cream area at the bottom of the quilt, she stitches a row of stemmed flowers surrounded by a dense pebble pattern.

Machine-Quilting Details

In the Falling Water color option, quilt tester Laura Boehnke utilized bright fabrics that feature floral and geometric prints in place of the batiks in the original. Laura chose nature-inspired fabrics that add bold pops of color. Fabrics are from Poetica from Art Gallery Fabrics.
