Above is my finished summer quilt (pattern Moda row by row book) quilted and ready to hang.
|love the beach quilting effect!|
I've been saving this tiny bi-plane scrap for years!!! Now it's perfect for this quilt, IMHO
The flags were just little triangular scraps of my fun "candy" fabrics, fused down with zigzag stitch
|wide bindings finish it off! matching fabric in binding carries the image to edge!|
I looked through my stash of prints to find summer things like pails, ball, umbrellas, little girls stand in for my friend Lane who's family welcomed me to come each year to their beach week hotel Sea Resort, and our catch phrase was "sea resort where everybody's happy!" and we were. Bikini's and coppertone, swishing palm trees and soft sandy walks, lemon juice in our hair and cooling off in the gentle rocking water.
On the other hand I also used dark blue to make some sweaters for the RSC project this year, and liked both prints
Remember going to the drive in movies? As a kid I wore pj's even though I'd go play on the swings during intermission! Sitting in a hot car in Florida with the speaker hanging on an open window, looking through the windshield to see the movie.
My collection is growing... I have to start thinking about how to showcase these. My idea is to float them on black and white fabric, and make a cute quilt to hang in the closet maybe...
I ran across Podunk Pretties video on how to make your own block loc ruler and HST guide... enjoy
