Modern Waves (Storm) – a Finish!



I’ve had this quilt up my sleeve to show you for a little while now. I made this for my brother who’s a keen obsessed sailor so when I was picking a colour scheme I decided to go with a stormy sea theme. I’m guessing but I think the colours are silver, slate, dark blue, indigo and charcoal.


I love the simple graphic nature of this design by Initial K Studio and we all love this quilt – my brother, my niece and me. Luckily, I can make one for myself as well and I’m definitely going to! I have fabric pull possibilities lying around the house as I tap this out and it’s just a matter of slotting it somewhere on the to-do queue.


It’s a really simple quilt to make, suitable for a beginner, and the instructions are really well written and set out. The pattern is available here.


The quilt finishes at 60 by 72 inches and is straight line quilted 1 inch apart.


Happy sewing
Sue

  1. The color scheme is really nice and the motion of the design works well with the nautical theme, too!

  2. I love it! Modern Waves is one of my favorite patterns from Initial K Studio, it's so simple yet striking. I still haven't made one because I'm indecisive about color, but yours is great!

  3. I can't help but admire the flowers in the background, my yard is suffering because of the lack of rain! Your quilt is so simple, yet it really draws my eye. I think the colors you chose are perfect! I am anxious to see the one you make for yourself.

  12. What a striking quilt! The colours are perfect- they certainly feel like sailing on the ocean on a grey, stormy day. Your brother's going to love it.
