Marilyn's Ocean Quilt

Marilyn made this quilt with fabrics and applique patterns she got in Hawaii.

She wanted the chevrons to look like waves, and some special treatment in the applique blocks.  I was so pleased with how the crosshatch on applique worked on Evelyns quilt that I used it again here.  This time I used a wavy crosshatch, so although I did mark the lines with chalk first, I didn't have to use templates for the stitching.  I think the wavy lines worked great too--to me it looks like I'm looking at these ocean creatures through a glass bottom boat.

 The chevrons are meant to be rows of whitecaps on top of the waves beneath.  (I have to amuse myself while quilting, so can get whimsical).
