Why We Like It

Sea Breeze is a geometric design inspired by sea waves. Simple shapes and 2-at-a-time half-square triangle piecing make it a straight-forward sew. 

Inspiration + Ideas

Match-making solids to the Sea Breeze quilt pattern gives SO many color possibilities! And it's really interesting to see how fabric color choice completely changes the look of this quilt.

All of these mockups work for any of the quilt sizes: baby, throw, or queen. Just follow the pattern fabric requirements to get the yardage you need in 3 colors plus a neutral background.

Light/Medium/Dark Color Values

The pattern calls for 3 color fabrics, and the cover quilt shows 3 different color values: light for Fabric A, medium for Fabric B, and dark for Fabric C. These differences in lights/darks are very important in this pattern. 

Here at Sewfinity we know importance of color value, so much so that we assign a color value to every fabric we sell. We use an 11-step value scale: 0 lightest to 10 darkest. To see these in action at Sewfinity.com, Shop Fabric then use the Color Value filter option in the sidebar. 

For the cover quilt, we figure that Fabrics A, B, and C use values 2, 4, and 6. But what would these values look like in other fabric colors? And what if we change up the values? These mockups showcase the answers for every color of the CMY color wheel on both light and dark backgrounds.

Left: values 1, 3, and 5

Center: values 3, 5, and 7

Right: values 6, 7, and 9/10

Neutral colors (brown and grey):

3-D

Changing the color value placement and putting it on a dark background gives an almost three-dimensional effect! The color values are 6, 5, and 4 for Fabrics A, B, and C. 

Again, to find fabric options at Sewfinity.com, Shop Fabric, select your color choice in the Color filter in the sidebar, then use the Color Value filter option.

Plaid

Again on a dark background, changing the color value placement gives an interesting effect - this time, PLAID! These are dark values 9, 7, and 8 for Fabrics A, B, and C.

Here's the grey version of values 9, 7, and 8. It doesn't give me plaid vibes, but wouldn't it be perfect for a guy who doesn't know that quilts can be cool?
