Description

This was made specifically to enter in the Modern Quilt Guild's Quilt Con show. The design started with a variation on a traditional star block. I set that on point and liked the vaguely "Storm at Sea" feel it gave to the quilt. To modernize it, I gave the design some negative space on each side, but off-center. Then, when I was playing around with the colors, I came up with this palette, which gives it sort of a transparency effect, and I loved it! And I thought the wavy line quilting added a "heat-haze" feeling, so that's where the name comes from.

This is amazing. I love the solids, the quilting, and how you really did take a more traditional block and made it modern.

This will definitely inspire me to be more daring with colour choices. Stunning!

I love the way the colours seem to disappear into the background on either side. Great use of transparency, and lovely movement as well.
