Thank goodness for the break in the semester we had last week, when I made time to work on this project. I am excited to share my finished Colors of the Ocean quilt!
I started this project as a part of Cherry’s quilt-along.
I made progress pretty quickly by finishing the top. And then it sat for awhile.
It was wonderful having time over spring break to quilt it and bind it. I love how the straight line quilting turned out. And I adore these colors. I am definitely sold on this modern look of solids and straight line quilting.

This is AWESOME Terri!!! I really LOVE it. I need simple I guess according to my hubby instead of what he calls busy quilts!! LOL!
Yay! you;0) it looks great.
very nice! i love how this one turned out!
Hi Terri! It is really so beautiful – the simple pattern and the most beautiful colour of the sea! xxx Teje
Modern and Fresh – love it!
And you must have been so happy to be able to photograph it outside on a sunny patio that wasn’t covered in snow!:)
That is so beautiful and really does remind me of the ocean. I hope you are enjoying your break!
Very pretty! Love the calming colors.
I just love it! The ocean is one of my favorite places…and anything in ocean colors just inspires me and makes me happy!
Love it! Congrats on finishing. 🙂
Oh, I love it!
This is so beautiful! Simple but so very striking!
Yay for Spring Break!!
Ohmigoodness I just want to snuggle! I think you deserve a beach getaway so you can take some pictures with it stretched out on some soft sand and with the ocean waves! Love, love love it!
It’s beautiful Terri – you did a fantastic job of the quilting. Of course you probably know that I’m going to say I adore the binding – it works so well with the solid colours. How brilliant that you were able to photograph it outside too in the dappled sunlight. I haven’t really done any straight line quilting yet but you are tempting me to give it a go – love it too.
Beautiful! Sometimes the water on the coast of California can be those very colors. And I can’t tell you how happy the polka dot binding makes me!
Simply gorgeous! I love this quilt!
Making something very simple plan or however you want to say it is a breath of fresh air to me. I have seen serveral quilts using plan solid colors with a few blocks and they look so wonderful. I just love the colors you used. Fresh, clean that is what I think of.
What a lovely quilt! I like your version ALOT!
This is so awesome! I have a bunch of solid purples I want to make one of these quilts out of. I really like the polka dot binding you picked too. You’ve been busy! 🙂
it is EXCELLENT!!! I adore the colors you used. so pretty and calming! i love your straight line quilting, too. it fits great with the simple design of the quilt.
I love the quilt it turned out great. It reminds me of swimming in a pool with the lane lines. Brings back such memories.
