Top: starts with dark navy and runs to light orange at the bottom, with horizontal chevron waves.
Waves of quilting, horizontal chevron waves, the evening night sky to full sunlight on the beach, the quilt is dotted with icons of the sea and shore. There are 11 of them including a large appliqué fish that swims its way through the ocean. Look for 10 embroidered images: the North Star, a dolphin, the blazing sun, seagulls, a sea turtle, a fish, an anchor, beach chair, sunglasses and a pair of flip flops. There are plenty of other under-the-sea creatures and boats/ships sailing on the ocean blue in the printed cotton blocks. Day and night, ocean and beach, sun and stars surrounded by daylight, blue sky and puffy clouds fading into a heavenly night dotted with far off stars. Use your imagination.
