This is my entry for Amy's Spring Festival.
Photographed in the sun, you can see all the stitching lines.
Photographed in the shade (below), the colours and lines are softened.
It is so hard to get good photos of the quilt.
This pattern is from the book Skinny Quilts and Tablerunners.
The pattern is By The Sea by Karen Eckmeier.
Floss is an Australian married to a Canadian. In looking through her blog to choose a theme for her, I discovered she misses the beaches of Oz and takes every opportunity to get her feet wet when any kind of beach appears, even in winter (yikes!). So this quilt is for Floss to have a bit of the beach with her wherever she goes.
There are a few close-up shots in my post here.
I really enjoyed making this quilt. Karen's instructions were great and I learned that it doesn't take a professional quilter (I am so not) to get great results. This is the first time I tried embellishing a quilt as well. Those are real seashells there!
I'm definitely going to make another!
