My goal for June was to make some progress on my Ottoman Rings wall hanging after my class with Tighe Flanagan earlier in the month.   A lot of the work the picture doesn't show is cutting all the pieces out using templates.  Read more about the quilt and the class here.

Surf's Up!

My family spends a week each summer at a NC beach and I enjoy sitting and watching and listening to the waves.  My mini Surf's Up attempts to capture the magic of those waves!

To create, I drew out a coloring book style wave and layer it with various colors of blue using fusible applique.  To secure the fabric layers, I did big stitch quilting.  The walking foot quilting was done after the waves were appliqued which meant threads to be buried.  I could have quilted the background first but my original plan was to quilt the waves with my walking foor.

I'm glad I didn't - I think the hand quilting adds some fun to my piece!

My mini finishes at 12" x 12".

I'll be submitting my quilt to the MQG's 2022 Make a Difference Challenge prompt is oceans and the challenge will benefit Oceana - a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and restoring the world's oceans on a global scale.  The deadline to submit a quilt is early August.

Have a wonderful day! Patty
