Sea Life

Don't you love it when a plan comes together?
For a while I had been looking for a pattern
for this fabric with a big print.
Cutting it up into small pieces
would not have done it justice.

One day I was cruising the internet and found the 
perfect pattern for this fabric.
I pulled other fabrics to go along with it and made the top.

"Sea Life" is now a finished quilt!
I am super pleased with this finish
and never dreamed it would turn out so well.

 I thought and thought about how I was going to quilt 
Sea Life and then one day it came to me....
just use a simple grid.
The fabrics speak for themselves in this quilt.

My husband cannot believe I am giving this one away.
 My friend, who lives at the beach, will love it
and it goes with the color scheme in her bedroom.


I stitched the quilting lines 2 1/2" apart in the grid.


There may be enough of this fabric left to make another quilt.
Maybe my husband will get one, too.

(I need to find some taller quilt holders!)

"Sea Life" is a finish and is ready for gifting.

Happy Quilting!

Lovely to let the fabric shine with the great blocks used as sashing. Looks wonderful

I think it turned out great and lets the fabric design show which is good!

Yep you nailed it lady...
That pattern and that fabric look like they where made for each other!
wow ... 2 ocean quilts in a row (on the blog at least) and each so different in color and tone.

Good things can come out of waiting! I'd say you found the perfect pattern for this fabric. Quilters are a generous bunch:)
