I finished another in the continuing series of beach-themed quilts. It began in 2010 when I made this quilt for a sick friend, all from stash, I think. It turned out nicely and was appreciated. I think the busyness is contained by the dark inner border. Then, in 2012, I used some of the leftover fabrics plus lots of khaki Kona to make this one. Obviously, it didn’t use much of the beachy fabric, so I continued. Last July I made this quilt. It turned out well, but was a process. Follow the link in that post to see how I cut lots of squares and then ended up editing about half of them. So today’s quilt uses many of those edited pieces.
The quilting is with a brown variegated thread from Coats and Clarks and a blue/green variegated Lava from Superior.
The back is so subtle it doesn’t show in the photos, but it is antique postcards in lovely cream and pale blue tones.
And, never fear, if you don’t like this one, I have scraps left for at least one more!
