CORRECTION from QCA Liz S: Back when I posted this quilt on June 4th I credited this beautiful quilt to the wrong person. The real creator is Alice Whitney, who made this version of the Under the Sea quilt based on a design by Sandi Irish published in Love of Quilting, Sept-Oct., 2008. I regret the mixup and wanted to be sure to give proper credit to Alice for her wonderful work.
Here is Alice's original note:
Hi! I recently (May 19) finished my version of the Under the Sea quilt published in Love of Quilting, Sept/Oct 2008. It has been a challenge, partly because I do most of my sewing for various holiday boutiques (or craft shows, if you prefer) and had to set it aside for over a year before finishing it. In May I decided the time had come--and spent most of 8 working days to get it ready to be on our bed as our queen-size summer quilt/bedspread. We're very happy with the color it brings to our room. Love the design--had wanted, for years, to make something using a Snail's Trail type of pattern. This quilt is the perfect combination of color and design.
