    I've wanted to do a beach theme quilt block for some time. I made a wall hanging in a quilt guild challenge years ago that won a ribbon! I was tickled. I'll post a photo when I dig it out. Wait til you see my inspiration for this swap!

    I went out on the web this morning and found tons of ideas! Now to see which ones I will use judith. There were patriotic, picnic, garden, animals, insects, swimming, beach, foods, drinks and attire to all go with summer. Who knew?

    Here is the prototype of my first set judith. I hope these are okay for the swap. My 9 1/2" square sea star that came in on the tide.

    Red, I love it. What a cute sea star.

    I too have finished another block for the swap. A simple but cute block.

    I have set number 3 all done and am ready to share. Summer is not complete without a celebration on the 4th of July. So, my quilt would not be complete without something red, white and blue.

    love the blocks. I won't join because 3 yrs ago, i made a big quilt for my front door of all summer goodies. I also added words, they are fun, hot, summer, beach sand, stuff like that. i'll follow this and see what everyone is doing.

    Judith, how about a rainbow border and binding?
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Hi Lynnie, The sounds like a cute idea for a border. I was thinking about a pieced border of some sort. Not sure just yet. I will give it some thought.

    I finished my 4th set of blocks. Hope yall like the blocks that I've put together so far. I'm not at all sure what my last set of blocks are going to be. I'm trying to figure out something. In the meantime, I think I will whip up a couple of Christmas postcards for my grandchildren while I think over the last set.

    I ran across some other fabrics about summer and will have another block finished today (Hopefully). There was a storm last night here and I won't be going anywhere in the ice and snow on the ground. Oh no not me, I'm not crazy. LOL!
    By the way, what is a breast idea, judith? Sounds like a funny mistake to me.

    Red, that's some seriously cute fabric. I love the block you came up with.

    djmat, I LOVE your star block. It is going to be perfect in a summertime quilt!
