WIP Wednesday

Here is the quilt I am making for DH Jerry in progress. I have about half of the blocks finished. He loves scuba diving and taking underwater film. He also sails, but once I started auditioning fabrics I decided to stick to the underwater theme.

I don't have quite enough of that batik with blue fish, so I am going back to the batik stash to look for something else. I would like to find something that looks like coral or seaweed. It could still change, but I've pretty much settled on the nine patch and snowball blocks. They look like little windows into the sea, at least that's what I'm after. Those angel fish are looking kind of like "op art", do I like them? Not sure.

I've made lots of quilts for everyone else, but somehow never one for him. His birthday is next month, so I hope he likes it. Don't worry, he doesn't read my blog, it will still be a surprise. He's also kind of oblivious to what is going on in my studio, he just knows I spend a lot of my free time in there.

On a cold winter day it just broadcasts a warm tropical feel. Nice.

That looks like it will be a really fun quilt.

Like a big pool to plunge into! I like the simple design as well.

I have a few fish fabrics I could send if you need more. This is going to be a great quilt!

This is beautiful fabric, and will make a fabulous quilt. Your pattern choice really showcases the beautiful fabric.
