Sea Glass: A Friday Finish

My obsession with strips continues, and a couple weeks ago I posted about this strippy quilt I was working on. Now it's quilted and finished. 

I quilted it with vertical wavy lines, dense in the sashing columns for texture but loose in the colored strips so the quilt wouldn't be too stiff. 

This little quilt - 39" x 48" - is destined for Operation Shower. 

A reader commented that the colors look like sea glass, so that's what I've named this quilt. You just can't beat a color palette of blues, aquas, teals and greens. The sashing fabric is a whitish Grunge with splotches of the palest green in it, the perfect use for that fabric which has been in my stash awaiting a purpose for awhile.

  7. So, so pretty! I love the texture that simple wavy line quilting gives it. Just like the lines in the sand as the waves wash across the pretty sea glass :)

  10. Your Sea Glass quilt is a vision in pretty colours. All those happy strips of fabric dance beautifully together. The white bordering these strips is the perfect choice.
