Sea of Love

Project Description

What are you most proud of? A co-workers wife is from Japan, and she gave me the words (ideograms?) for the back label, which helped bring it all together. I quilted this in an all-over "wave" pattern, which I think turned out well. This was one of my first large quilts. I made this for Christmas 2007 when I was in some kind of quilting frenzy - I made six quilts in 3-1/2 months that year for Christmas gifts (while working full time - not sure how I managed that!). Of all of those quilts, this is the one I looked at and thought, "I can't believe I made this." What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just let your imagination wander and the fabric will tell you what to do.

What you will need

  • cotton and batik fabrics
  • polyester batting
