Making Waves! Finished Quilts for Sale

These quilts are now listed for sale in my Etsy store
(Edited to add: The quilt on the right has now sold, the one on the left is still available for sale.)

 Both New Wave quilts are finally done! I finally got pictures since I had two sets of hands yesterday to help hold them. I used Kona Coal for the solid in these and I have absolutely fallen in love with it! I think I have already gone through about 7 yards between these quilts and a few other projects I have going.  The prints in these were a mixed pulled from my scraps and stash. 
I decided to leave the ends zig-zagged instead to cutting them off even.  It's not any harder to bind and I think it looks fun.  

I also played with the quilting thread colors that I used against the grey.  This one has a bright kiwi green in the grey stripes and also on the grey backing.

I have to admit, this one (below) with the larger grey areas is my favorite of the two. 
I used an ocean-blue turquoise for the quilting on this one.  
I quilted two lines echoing either side of each stripe. 
These were a delight to piece and quilt.  It's such a fun pattern!
A shot of the quilting from the back.
The quilt with the colored stripes on the front got a brightly colored back (on the left).  I'd ordered several yards of this great turquoise coordinate years ago.  It has tiny white circles on it but  reads as a solid from a distance.  I almost used it up with the project! 

The other quilt, the one with the larger sections of prints and grey sashing, got a grey back.  I quilted the second quilt slightly heavier and used the same bright green thread in my bobbin that I'd used on the front.  It really pops!

These two matching quilts are just over 50"x60" and they are for sale.  Please contact me if you're interested or know someone who might be.  I would love it if these could go to the same home.
