I was asked if I was going to make another one any time soon and it just so happens I had that on the dreaded list of projects. This time I decided to make two. It made sense since all the fabric will be right there at my fingertips!
First thing was bring all the blues together in one spot. I cut strips from 25 + different shades of blue and arranged them on the design wall. Once I was happy with the 'flow', I began the piecing.
A calm peaceful feeling always takes over during this process. I love seeing where it goes, how it all comes together.
The waves wash over each other, a playful splash here and there. The sound, the mist spraying with each crash...can you tell it's been a long winter?! I need me some beach life!
I keep building until it becomes close to the size I have in mind. Which is about 13 x 17 when all is said and done.
Both are finished and very soon will be ready for the quilting part. Many, many waves of thread!
Another thing I love about my ocean, each one is different and unique.
