ocean waves

Nancy-smNancy’s Ocean Waves is a multi-color, multi-fabric quilt in a horizontal setting. There is a row of half blocks around the center section of the quilt. The quilt measures 96 x 96 inches with the 12 inch border. I started out with a red and purple color scheme and ended up with a blue and green color scheme because of the lighthouse applique I wanted to use in the border on my version. (The lighthouse doesn’t look as nice on the red border.) The blue-and-green-only color scheme fell flat so I added in a deep red and some purples for contrast and sparkle. If you don’t want to use as many different fabrics as I have in mind for my quilt, print more Half Square Triangles for each of the fabrics you plan to use.

This quilt design uses an “X” layout — top left corner looks like an X — for the Ocean Waves blocks. It is a less common layout for this quilt. There is a printing chart for the more traditional “O” layout — top left corner looks like an O — in this post.

There is a gallery slideshow at the bottom of this post with colorway variations.

This design uses the Inklingo HST 00B, the Inklingo Square 00B and the Inklingo Circles Collections. I colored the blocks in EQ7 with fabrics from Toscana by Northcott.

Yes, another nautical-themed quilt. Sometimes looking for a married woman’s maiden name feels a bit like looking out over the horizon on the ocean with no land in sight. Just an endless sea. I have a list of female names in my tree with no last names. Nancy sits in the middle of the list. She is (most likely) Ellen (Burton) Pollitt’s mother and my 5x great grandmother. This one is for Nancy and all the others whose last names are unknown.
