Kelli asked for blocks that are inspired by the ocean for my 1 Year 12 Quilts Virtual Bee. This one is called Ocean Waves. It was a 10″ block in my magazine, so I added a border of a different print, but in the same colors. I have a substantial stash of Neptune, so I was able to pick the colors I wanted. Kelli sent lots of layer cake pieces for the blocks, but I am a Neptune addict and had something specific in mind. I will be returning her layer cake pieces so she can make more ocean blocks.
This one has a few names. Virginia Reel, Snail’s Trail…just to name a few. But you can’t argue that it looks like water swirling around, especially in these color choices. At first I thought this would be a paper pieced block, but it wasn’t. It was much easier to put together than I thought it would be. Hope she likes it. I think I am all caught up now…but it is almost May!
