With sights like these in my heart and on my mind,
I started pulling fabric from my shelves and out of my closet to make this big mess on the floor,
which resulted in the beginnings of a sea quilt. Ah, to be wrapped up in the waves. Yes!
Note: So many of you asked about the quilting method in the comments, I'm going to answer you right here! The 'method' used on these blocks is one I first discovered in the Japanese book Patchwork Style (now available in English - hooray!). I've done it on a few other projects too - Adelaide's quilt, this table runner, chair pads, and some pillows too. I love it - it's such fun to mix and match the fabrics and I love, love, love that it needn't be precise or even straight. Love that. So, the pieces are sewn to a square of batting, and then all those blocks are pieced together, just as a quilt top would go together otherwise. I still add batting, and backing, and then quilt - in one way or another - the entire thing before binding it. So it's not exactly quilt-as-you-go, but it is quite fun. Check out the book for more specific instructions.
