Marina Blues is a 68-inch square quilt made with two different quilt blocks. It was inspired by a model home I toured many, many years ago -- all teals and blues and sea-greens, with a crystal clear blue-lined pool outside the back door -- a perfect match for the Florida beach town it sat in. That house has been stuck in my mind ever since, but the theme doesn't mesh with our home in the mountains. Here I'm mostly drawn to the colors of ferns and stones, the darker greens and browns of pine tree needles and trunks -- earth colors rather than water colors. But I love the ocean and its varied colors keep coming back to mind. I might have to convert a bathroom to this theme, just to wrap them around me.
