WIP Wednesday -Seaglass

I saw this pattern in Quilt It magazine and had to have it. Promptly ordered the kit from Fat Quarter Shop (fabulous and fast service!) and immediately fell in love! Pat Bravo's Art Gallery Fabrics have the softest feel, it is so smooth, but crisp at the same time. Love. I have never purchased Art Gallery Fabrics before, do they all feel this good?
The pattern was super easy and what I like to call mindless sewing. Chain piecing lots of squares into HST's is just about my all time favourite thing. I zone out and I swear it is my meditation. Definitely peaceful and happy thoughts are stitched into each square as well as strength and healing. I really think a quilt conveys an attitude!
I quilted it with straight vertical lines and some follow the straight diagonal lines, all in the ditch. My ditch is not in the ditch all the time. How do you do that?
Love the colours, the feel, and the pattern. Love this quilt.

I made it for a colleague journeying with cancer. Hope she gets as much pleasure from the quilt as I did making it for her.

  1. Absolutely gorgeous quilt ~ it's amazing what can be done with HSTs!

  2. Beautiful quilt! I love Art Gallery Fabric too! I've been making an "x plus" block quilt with their Rhapsodia line. I totally agree - softer than others but keeps it shape and easy to work with!

  3. Very pretty, Pam! I'm sure all those lovely colours will bring much comfort to your friend. :-)

  4. Looks great--lots of happy colours!

  5. I will never grow tired of sewing together HST's! This is a wonderful pattern for that type of sewing! You did a great job!

  6. I too think that our feelings as we sew find their way into our quilts so I'm sure your colleague will feel the love and enjoy that and the quilt. For me it's not the piecing but handquilting that is definitely a meditative process!
