“Ocean Waves Journey” Completed!

I completed the long-arm quilting and binding of the “Ocean Waves Journey” quilt!


Here are some close-ups of the various quilting motifs:

The quilt finished at about 101 inches square. I used around 3400 yards of thread which my dear son-in-law pointed out is about 2 miles of thread! I used two colors of Fil Tec Glide thread, turquoise and plum. The batting is Hobbs 80/20. I collected 34 dark teal fat quarters and 34 light fat quarters to construct the half square triangles in the quilt. I counted 4900 triangles, but if you want to check that out yourself, let me know if you arrive at a different total. Click here and here for earlier posts about this quilt.

    Oh my, it’s just wonderful. I’m working on that one myself. I’ve finished the Block A & B and am working on the half blocks. Still quite a ways to go. So nice to see it’s actually capable of being finished. Maybe by year end. Yours is gorgeous and congratulations on a spectacular finish.
