Linking up to Work in Progress Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
Wow, I had a hard time choosing my favorite quilt to enter in this show. I really like several of the things I’ve made this year. In fact, I started a post on “Windflowers” before I realized that this was my favorite. For today.
I quilted this entirely with white Bottom Line by Superior Threads. I stablized the lines between all the blocks first, then did the diagonals in one direction only. I’m very pleased with the alternating wavy lines. My favorite comment from a viewer: “I can feel the breezes!”
The best part about Ocean Breezes is its new home. It was purchased by a woman who had an antique family quilt in aqua and white (unusual, I think, she sent me a picture), and she felt that this one was meant to come home to be with hers. I couldn’t be happier.
