'Ocean Waves' Rag Quilt

from Maryland Quilter
(7) Name: 'Quilting : 'Ocean Waves' Rag Quilt
'Ocean Waves' Rag Quilt

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Techniques used: reverse frayed-applique, rag quilt edging

Pattern Description:

Ahoy mate! Bring the ocean home with an Ocean Wave Rag Quilt! The best part of making Ocean Wave is cutting away the top layer of fabric to reveal the multicolored layers underneath. The waves seem to move and the quilt comes alive. You will have so much fun and be so surprised at how fast you can complete this quilt!

This quilt is almost instant gratification-- you put the layers together and the quilting and sewing happen at the same time-- so you don't make the quilt top and then still have to assemble and quilt everything. Ocean Waves is like a quilt blanket; there is no heavy batting, just three layers of flannel fabric which make the throw lightweight and so soft.

This pattern includes complete easy to follow directions with photos. There is a full size printable pattern piece included. The pattern is written with metric units in parenthesis.

Approximate time to complete: less than 6 hours

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Approximately 50x41 inches (127cm x 104cm)


  • 3 yards (2.75 m) dark green flannel for front and back
  • 1/2 yard (0.5 m) each of 6 flannel fabrics in blues, purples, whites, and or black in prints and solids as desired
  • Variegated thread (I used Sulky 943 2240) or matching thread to the dark green fabric
