Congratulations to Martha Green as the winner of one of my patterns for the Quilt Woman Blog Hop.
This is part of the Quilt Woman Water Blog Hop. At the end of this blog, find out how you can win a free pattern.
One way is the use strips of different fabrics. The Dolphin Family Dive pattern uses 6 strips with the value from light to dark to give the impression of depth to the water.
This Turtles Riding the Waves pattern uses 7 strips varying the value from light to dark.
This Turtles Up and Down pattern use one fabric for the water. The fabric looks like water with the horizontal lines and the changes in value.
This Turtle Frolic pattern uses strips which are cut apart and moved up and down to create the water. Again the fabric values move from light to dark.
This orca whale quilt uses fabric squares in values from medium to dark to create the water.
This humpback whale pattern uses fabric squares and in this case the values go from light to dark.
This fish pattern uses the strips in a vertical way varying the colors from blue to green.
This loon pattern uses horizontal strips varying the value and the loons look like they are tucked in the water.
As you can see there are different ways to create the look of water using strips, squares or whole pieces of fabrics.
If you'd like to be in the running for one of my patterns (winner's choice!), please leave a comment on my Facebook Page. I'll choose a random winner at the end of the blog hop!
