    unbelievable, he even had some quilting designs in there.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    How can he keep the dimensions and angles correct?! Does he pre-draw? Even then to be able to see the whole image in his mind...incredible!

    They are amazing, I agree. Some of the art look like a giant over sized example of free motion quilting. I wonder if his mom, grandma or auntie was a quilter to set those beautiful thoughts in his creative thinking.

    So pretty! I am never at the beach early enough to be able to catch any art that might be there. It does give some inspiration for FMQ!

    This was featured on CBS am news This week. He uses a drone with a camera. Each project takes 2-3 hours and he does them for weddings. At $2000-$3000 a piece. He also teaches classes. If I ever to California I am going to look into taking a class.

    I saw this on TV. What a beautiful thing to do. And the tide washes it away so something new can be made.

    Makes no sense to me!!! He should be designing pantographs or templates for US quilters. Magnificent. Shows the brief life of surface beauty....
    Each project adds to my stash of knowledge. Love sharing the results with anyone who'll look.
