    My DD's BFF is getting married in September at the beach. She loves the beach, so my daughter suggested a quilt with beach colors. So I am thinking a sand color (maybe with a hint of peach), and maybe 2 colors of blue like the different shades of the sea or sky and just perhaps a touch of green like sea grass (or not). Don't want a difficult pattern, and had though of a D9P or Warm Wishes, but not sure how to assign the fabrics. Should it be predominantly blue, or sand color....has anyone made a quilt with this type of color scheme and what pattern did you use. I am horrible at this part of quilting. If I have a pic/pattern I can do it. If I had my way, I would buy all kits :roll: Any help would be appreciated. Pics/examples would be great.

    Thanks in advance.

    I can understand where you are coming from. Sometimes my plans and skill/time/energy are unequally matched :cry:

    This quilt was based on ocean colors for a friend's anniversary. The pic is brighter than the actual quilt.

    There are some gorgeous seashell fabrics around. One of the ones with a tan background would work really well with an ocean and sky fabric.

    That is really pretty and it does remind me of the ocean. Were all the little squares hard?
