NTT~Ocean Quilt

Kelly over at My Quilt Infatuation is linking up again. I have so many UFO's like most of us do. What am I going to do...create another quilt!! I wanted a new quilt for my bed that reflexes something that both my husband and I like. We both love the ocean. He loves blue, I love green. I found a book at Joann's that was just what I was looking for. I have been busy sewing the pieces and got to a point where I felt like I need to add more craziness to the piecing. Why not add a UFO so that I can sew both at the same time. I added my Double Delight (a Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt). In the picture you can see the teal pieces for the Ocean Quilt and the purple and orange for the Double Delight.

 Here I have blue and teal pieces for the Ocean Quilt with yellow and white pieces for my Double Delight.

As I was working on the lay out for the Ocean Quilt my daughter thought it would be fun to be a dork but I GOT HER!!! She told me to delete it. I did one better I am bogging about it. HA HA!

Here is my Ocean Quilt laid out. it goes from brown which is the sand to green for seaweed to teal and blue for the ocean and sky to grey for the clouds. I am sewing the rows together now. I can't wait until it is done. I LOVE IT!! 

As for the Double Delight, I have all the pieces sewn now. I just need to trim about 2/3 of them. Then I can start making blocks. I got more of it done than if I had just worked on only one quilt.
