Saturday at the Quilt Museum - Ocean Waves

Ocean Waves Collage

Another quilt requested for posting is "Storm at Sea."  I didn't feel I could do it without including "Ocean Waves" too!

So, we're on a three-week journey of quilts that have to do with the sea.  Here goes!

This first one I really like because of the  use of different greens in the blocks.  It makes it look so rich to me.

There is more information at the Quilt Index:

I like this one for it's different feel.  The brown and tan color choices and the placement of the lights in the "waves" just does something unusual.

I love the red, white, and blue of this one.  Rather random color placement and the scrappy feel makes it fun.

This one has no information attached to it that I can find, but the pink is an unusual color for this pattern, so I included it.

There's no information that I can find about this one either, but the second picture shows some really fun fabrics that were used.  I love the blue, of course!  That's what drew my eye.

This is where I found it:

Next week we'll dive into the Storm at Sea pattern.  We have some fun in store!

Thanks for joining us for our tour of Ocean Waves Quilts!

Happy Quilting!!
