Sometimes I get a little obsessed with my Morning Make. As in, I am just so in to the project that what is supposed to be 15 minutes turns in to an hour. Not counting the sneaking away in the afternoon to sew more.
That's what happened with with particular quilt. The improv curves went together so quickly that it was hard to make just a couple at a time. I wanted to make dozens at a time. Needless to say, the top came together fast. (I actually finished this a few weeks ago but have had no time to snap a pic.)
Inspired by my beautiful walks on the Prince Rupert waterfront back in April, Ripples is an homage to those calming mornings in a literal sea of blue. I watched seals and birds eat breakfast, breaking the surface of the ocean that was so calm you could have waterskied. I sat to witness the fog roll in off the ocean. I listened to the small island ferries and visiting fisherman. It was a magical weekend inside and outside the classroom and I wanted to mark it.
Alas, I live on the Prairie, so I need quilts (and photos) to bring me back to my ocean love affair.
This is another in my landscape series. It was supposed to just be Alberta landscapes but apparently I decided along the way to include all my special places in the country.
