Size - 58” x 77”

The Ocean Waves Quilt pattern is a traditional motif believed to have been created around the 1850’s and inspired by the New England coast.

The dark slate grey is made with Essex cotton/linen fabric that has been dyed with chestnut, logwood and iron. The accent colors are a range of earthy pinks, teals, blues, brick reds and tans created with natural dyes like cutch, walnut, osage orange and indigo. The first two images are the most accurate for color. 

The back of the quilt is an improvised mix of dark grey, tan and earthy pink dyed fabric. The hand quilted pattern really comes through on the backside and makes the back of the quilt feel like its own work of art.

The front and back were machine pieced, meaning the patchwork is machine sewn. The quilting, meaning the stitches running throughout, is done by hand with walnut dyed cotton sashiko thread. Hand quilting is a very laborious and time consuming process but the impact of the hand stitches cannot be mimicked with a machine. The binding is made with walnut dyed fabric and is also sewn by hand.

This medium weight quilt has 100% cotton batting. It is a functional piece that would be best suited as a bedspread or as an accent piece for furniture.
