Using my partner's favorite colors, this is the palette I chose to work from (just imagine a creamy orange inserted in there).
I had to insert some Anna Maria Horner fabrics in there - a designer that is completely absent from my considerable stash! With my new purchases plus some charms from a friend who is an AMH devotee and a big stash pull, I was ready to go.
I settled on the Wavelength pattern by Freshly Pieced but since this is a MINI swap, I had to shrink the paper pieced templates down to 60%. Even then, doing all the quilty math and getting the amount of rows and columns that I wanted, I knew it was going to run on the plus-size.
Seriously...what was I thinking making 100 paper pieced blocks that were going to finish at 2.75"?? It took foreeeeeeeever. But once it started to come together, I could tell it was going to be worth it.

It is bound with a gray and silver metallic fabric that complements everything nicely and backed with my coveted Nummers fabric. I hope that my partner loves it as much as I do!
I would love to make a full-sized Wavelength someday...guess it's another one to add to the list!
