Good Morning Everyone! I am excited to announce the release of another pattern, Coral Reef!
I have been wanting to make a quilt with coral fabrics for a while, and decided to pair them with aqua, dark blue and neutral. I used this picture, from ARS Technica, as inspiration for the colors.
You can see that the aqua and dark blues contrast well, and the coral color adds a nice pop.
One of the things I focused on in the design process was adding movement in the pattern. I wanted to create a “wave” effect. So, without further ado, meet Coral Reef!
As you can tell, the movement is made by turning one of the blocks row-by-row, and allowing them to look as though the aqua fabrics are woven together.
This pattern was tested by a new friend, thanks to @turtlequilterjo on Instagram for volunteering your talents.
I was able to complete my own quilt top yesterday.
I love how soft the aqua fabrics look in the final product!
Have you made a Coral Reef inspired quilt? Lets see some pictures!
