First up (or second if you count my green quilt) is blue. I just used various length strips and alternated between dark and light blues. The black lines were meant to give the quilt some visual structure and to bring down the overall color of the quilt into something a bit deeper.
I used straight-line quilting for the black strips, but wavy lines for the blue. The intention was to evoke ocean waves.
Part of me thinks that this quilt was not especially successful. It doesn't really evoke the ocean, and the variation between the colors is much too intense in places.
But on the other hand, the whole point of this series was to just kinda see what happened if I put the colors together this way or that way, and well, now I know.
