Design Wall Monday - May 21
Since this was my May UFO, I'm linking this post up to Judy's UFO challenge today (May 31). I had hoped to have it quilted, but I guess a completed top is better than nothing, and much farther than I was at the beginning of the month.
This top was intended to reflect waves washing up on shore, with the lighter blues being the shoreline. Originally I tried to also include a setting sun, but I decided I didn't like the effect so took it out.
The quilt is 95x75, sized for my son's bed. It ends with a dark blue border (hard to see on the dark floor) and will be bound with the same fabric (assuming there is enough left on my cutting table for that). I considered adding a cream border all around, but I kind of like this effect.
I'm thinking about quilting it simply with wavy lines following the direction of the waves, but I haven't completely decided yet.
There is one spot in the border where I'm not 100% happy with the way the colours line up. But after trying without much success to get a good picture of the "issue", I decided that maybe there is no issue after all.
