Sand and Sea

I had a spurt of creative enthusiasm hit me one evening. Lately taking on a big quilting project has not been on my docket.  So as I was thinking of the upcoming Christmas holiday (only 92 days left) I remembered that I wanted to make something special for a friend of mine who is home bound.  As the days until Christmas are ticking away at a very rapid pace, here is what I did.


I dug out this pattern, and rifled through my fabric stash.


And this is the basic Sand and Sea landscape.  I'll be adding the borders to make this into a portrait type mini quilt.  

After working on this, I thought I had better bring out my fall landscape to hang in our entry way.


I would love to have one for each season.

Happy Quilting!

As a fan of all things beach-related, I love that quilt you're making for your home-bound friend ... and I'll bet she (?) will too! Gorgeous!

That is so cool! I'm amazed that your stash had just the perfect sand-colored patterns to mimic the beach! Amazing!

I have three quilting projects going at the moment and am determined to finish them before starting on anything else! No UFO's for me!
