Ocean Waves Finished

As I started typing this post,
I realized that I had not named this quilt
I've made for my daughter and son-in-law.
It's the colors of the ocean and looks like waves,
so it will be called
"Ocean Waves".

Ocean Waves is finished!

This pattern is "Canyon Dance"
and this is the fourth or fifth quilt I've made with this pattern.
I love it!


(It is square... the photo is wonky!)
My daughter loves these colors,
as do I. It was fun playing with all of these batiks.


I started not to use this photo,
but it's like the sun shining on the water.
It's a queen size quilt, so it's a bit difficult to photograph.


Nothing to match but the block corners on this one.
And the curves are easy.... honestly!!


The backing is from my stash and leftovers from the quilt!
I hope to have one more finish for 2019,
but this may be it.
Not a bad way to finish the year if it is!

Happy Quilting All!

Well done! Good use of those batiks that don't do well cut into smaller pieces.

I like it - at first I thought it a Drunkard's Path pattern but quickly realized it wasn't - did you make your templates or was the pattern purchase - I really like it

I can only repeat what's been said before me---but it's still true! This is a beautiful quilt and they WILL love it. The blues and blue/greens are so pretty but the pops of green and violet just make the quilt radiant. Well done, Ramona....you can rest for the remainder of 2019 if you want! Merry CHRISTmas and Happy New Year. I look forward to another year (online) with you and Doodlebugs!
