The Evolution of the Ocean Quilt

The quilt I wanted to make for myself began with collecting blue and green fabrics ~ usually fat quarters here and there, with no design in mind ~ just the color scheme.

Then my friend, April, introduced me to Jane Brocket and her book ‘The Gentle Art of Quiltmaking’. HEY! Lookie there! On the front cover and on page 127 ~ The Swimming Pool! That’s pretty! I’ll do a quilt like that!

Then I saw Allison’s (of Cluck. Cluck. SEW.) quilt SEEING RED. You can see the finished quilt in this post.

OOOOH! I’ll make the blocks Half Square Triangles, instead of a square patch quilt!!!!

Which led to the following arrangements on the design wall…

To the FINAL design…shown two ways…the last picture being the direction I will use.

Still have to figure out the borders…Blue? Green? Both?

Here’s a close up of most of the fabrics in the quilt.
