A virtual quilt show - Quilt 1

Since I'm traveling this week and will have limited internet access (or maybe none) I decided I'd schedule a quilt show and show photos of some of my quilts while I'm gone.

First up is this Ocean Waves quilt
Designed in EQ, I pieced all the blocks and Mom helped me out by assembling the top and then I quilted it. Normally I prefer a more scrappy quilt but this was for Deb and she wanted two fabrics. It's quilted with Jodi Beamish's Waterworld Pantograph.

Love it! The quilt seems to pulsate! And, of coure, Blue and White is always lovely. Have a wonderful trip!

A virtual quilt show! How fun is that. I love this one. I absolutely adore 2 color quilts. I think using only the 2 fabrics is quilt stunning and frankly probably easier to pick fabric for! LOL. I love blue also. Beautiful.

Ocean Waves is one of my favorite blocks ... I like the "motion" of it. Beautiful colors ... even though I'm like you and prefer scrappy quilts ... sometimes a two color quilt can be exceptionally striking. This is proof of that! Just lovely ... Enjoy your travel and will check website to see if you can post while you're gone ... I enjoy your blog very much.

I love that quilt! I know you were less than thrilled to make it, but it is striking.
