Back to the Beach!  We can dream, can’t we?

I chose bright blues for this quilt instead of the aquas I usually use.  Some of the quilts have been a bit subdued, but this one is very sunny and cheerful.  Also, I think the novelty prints make it more fun.

The backing is a decorator fabric that was perfect for this quilt.  It wasn’t a problem to quilt though.  Nonnie reminded me about quilting from the back, so I did!

I love the placement of the squares and square spirals on the front.  The only problem was that the squares were wonky and did some jogging and curving.  The result is…casual.

In general, it gave it a great texture.
