This quilt reminds me of the ocean both above and below so I quilted it like many of us view the ocean, complete with a sprinkling of surfers. A steady watery quilt meander moves throughout the quilt so that it looks like the rises and falls of the ocean and a border of waves and dolphins swim over all of the borders. DH asked if they were all boy surfers or if some were girls, so clearly I told her the ones that were female surfers were which ever ones she wanted them to be.
Like many of my other quilts this one is fully reversible. Originally this pattern was called Country Lanes, but the colors seemed to take it so far from Country Lanes, that I named this quilt Tropical Waves. I started the back with an orphan block and some extra pieces and worked from there. Before long a Tiffany look had come over the back and it grew from there.

Now all the threads are tucked into the quilt and the binding is on. The quilt finished up at 54"x85" which is a nice twin bed size. Even Sunny thinks this quilt is top notch. Okay well this is the best you get for a Sunny picture because he wasn't thrilled I made him stop grooming and look up. I think it's a little funny that this is the best "why are you bothering me" face that he can manage.
