This Is the Making of a Quilt

This is the making of a quilt:








This quilt is supposed to resemble water. The dark blues mixed with some lighter shades along with grey are intended to mimic the waves of an ocean. I normally don't have "theme quilts", but here you go.

I used more of that linen-like muslin for part of the back and plain grey cotton for the top. The strip incorporates some of the patterns from the front.

A close-up. More of that wavy line quilting, which seemed to match a water theme perfectly. I used a grey thread for the stitching this time and I like the result.

This one is not for keeps. It will find a very special home. Someone that will enjoy wrapping it around them and finding warmth and comfort.
