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.

2019-05-17 13.37.01This is the Supernova pattern again.  When I made this quilt, using the tutorial from Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Jaye said she thought I should make some variations.  Here’s one; you never know if I might try more.

This floral fabric is too pretty to be called a stash dog, but it had been hanging around my stash for way too long.  Like, I have no idea how long.  Many years.  I bought this pretty ombre recently to use with it, so until I bound it, this was a two fabric quilt.

And I finally went to the top-to-bottom color wash layout.

I quilted in the ditches from the center out with pink Bottom Line, and used a serpentine stitch in between in pink Sulky.  I used all light pink Bottom Line on the back and I can’t believe how well it blended with all the colors.  I guess it’s a thing that light pink does that, but I didn’t know.

I’m very happy with the way this turned out, and with my binding fabric.

Yuri’s happy, too.  We hope you have some good finishes this week.
