Ocean Colors create Soothing Art Quilt

If you have been following me you know I have some themes in design.  This year I made another Ocean colors wall quilt.  This is an abstract, curved piecing of the varied colors of the ocean.  It is a chance to play with blues for a day or two!!  There is almost no way to make a mistake with all these blues and fun to try different piecing.

Ocean Colors 4 was also fun to quilt.  I took a look at my past Ocean Colors art quilts for ideas and a refresher about how I quilted past similar quilts.  You can see from the photo of the BACK of the quilt the variety of free motion quilt stitching I used on this wall quilt.  As I’ve said a bunch of times before….art quilting should be creative and fun!!  This was definitely enjoyable to quilt.  I decided on my stitch designs as I went along.  This was one of those times it was OK to work this way.  Sometimes a bigger picture design plan is needed but not with Ocean Colors or other abstract art quilts similar to this one.
