The idea for Aquatic began at the aquatic center of a local high school. I noticed the tile by the outdoor showers when picking up grandkids from the pool.
This quilt came together quickly, as it was just a matter of cutting squares and then trying to mimic the tile placement from the aquatic center.
A friend taught at the high school and during one of her lunch periods, she was able to get us into the aquatic center when it was not full of students so we could take photos of the quilt. Because it was high noon, we had to deal with bright light and shadows.
Once we had decided on a second calendar, of course we had to make a trip to the coast. We chose 17 Mile Drive, one of our favorite spots in all of California.
This quilt might have converted me into a "blue" lover.
