It's Blue

This is what I have been working on this week.  It's for the QA Forum Challenge.  I know it's not purple, I will have to work on that later.  The theme for this challenge was one color.  I have a lot of blue.  I also decided to make it for April 20.  That will be the one year anniversary of the BP oil spill in the Gulf.  I wanted a lot of texture and a sense of movement.  I added pleats, machine thread work and hand quilting.  I am currently adding beads and trim.

I so need a better camera!  The cross hatching was drawn on at 1 am one morning when I could not sleep.  I swear I used a ruler and marked off 1 inch segments.  It still came out uneven!!! You can't really tell much by these pictures.  Here is a picture of the beads I am using. 
Happy Quilting

It's wonderful. The blues are so tranquil, and I love how you are using different shapes in the quilt
