Heat Waves Pattern

Do you remember the Mambo Collection from Windham Fabrics? The one you should wear sunglasses to view? And the FREE tote bag pattern I shared a few days ago using the collection? Well, here is the pattern for that psychedelic Heat Waves quilt . . .

Heat Waves: 56" x 62"
I don't have a picture of the finished quilt. This was in 2007 before I had a camera phone. Remember how we had little cameras that had FILM in them and we had to take them to the local camera shop to get them developed? I thought it was radical to get a CD with all the photos! Wow - to get them onto my computer that way was so 21rst century. I digress.

Here is a multi-page pattern with illustrations and assembly diagrams. Use your own fabrics and play around with the line drawing. The template is included. The center melon shape is appliqued under the larger melon shape, trimmed and then the large, two color shape is raw edge appliqued to the blue background squares and rectangles. Fun playing with color!

Heat Waves Pattern - enjoy!
