Chairs on the Beach Quilt

My client requested a king-sized floor length quilt inspired by a painting that she bought on vacation - Chairs on a Beach.  We designed the quilt using Electric Quilt 8.  Many iterations later we had the perfect quilt.   A flat photo doesn't do it justice.

The horizontal strips are all 2" tall.  The vertical strips range from 1" to 3" wide to provide the wave effect.  There are seven shades of turquoise, nine shades of gray, four shades of rust and fout shades of gold.  There are three different combinations of these fabrics to create three different waves.

I quilted it on the Gammill longarm machine at the Wilson Park Senior Center in Milwaukee.  It was the largest quilt they'd ever done there.  The maximum width allowable on the machine.
