Under Currents by Patty Sloniger, 2015

This quilt was directly inspired by the oceanic fabrics I wanted to use. The top is pieced to simulate ocean currents, using half-square triangles in a decidedly diagonal direction, while the quilting was designed to resemble the surface ripples you'd see if someone tossed a stone into the water. The two layered atop each other create a nice contrast of movement and depth, the ripples on the surface and the currents flowing underneath.
