For some time now I have been wanting to share the final results of my "watery" quilt. I sent it off to the lovely, talented Mary at Quilt Hollow for her wonderful quilting. She did an all-over, edge to edge pattern of seashells and starfish.
If you remember, I began this quilt to use my collection of turquoise batiks that I began acquiring while living in Hawaii. The pattern is Bali Breeze from Scrap-Basket Sensations by Kim Brackett. I reversed it by having the lights as the stars and the turquoises as the background. To me, it looks more "oceany" that way. It began life the size in the pattern, lap size, but once my parents saw it, they decided it would look great in their guest room. They have a twin bed there, but they wanted it to hang to the floor like a bedspread, so it "grew" to be nearly king-sized.
Have a great day,
