Making progress on the Ocean quilt!
The sashing is some that I had had cut out for a long time, so nothing new there, and I am using up stash. Win/win!!
Have you ever seen the ocean?? I have only seen it a small handful of times. When I was a little girl, I longed to see it...and when at last I got to see the ocean, I thought it would be a flat blue...but no!! It is hundreds of colors, from deepest indigo, to aqua, to foamy light colors. I stared and loved it as long as my parents would allow, on that long ago trip. When I see this quilt, it just reminds me of those colors I loved so long again, in my beloved ocean.
Now this is not what this quilt began as...I just love the color dusty aqua...but somehow greens, blues and brights all crept into this particularly loved basket of saved and cherished strings. The combination is so calming to me, and I love it!!
This is based on a scrap quilt by Audrey, at Quilty Folk!! Thank you dear Audrey!
Never saw a string I didn't like, LOL!!!
Have a great day,
