    Beach Glass is finished!

    Here is my version of Weeks Ringle & Bill Kerr's Beach Glass quilt. In general, I'm happy with it, but I learned that sometimes you can't find all the fabrics you need at one shop. The range of colors I used should have been narrower. My darks were too dark; my lights, too light. In their quilts, in particular, color is very important to achieve the look that they get. My husband says it reminds him of a DNA analysis. My LAQ did her usual great job. I don't have a recipient for it yet, but I'm sure something will come up. Thanks for looking.

    This a beautiful quilt. The colors, although they may not be the exact ones you wanted, complement each other and remind me of the colored sea glass I would find along Revere Beach in Massachusetts.

    it looks beautiful the way it is, by not using the exact required material you have put your own individual twist to it which makes it unique

    I never saw the original design but this is a very pretty use of color. Congratulations on your very pretty new quilt.

    I looked it up and yours may be a little bolder, but I think I actually like it better!

    I really love it, and the narrow strips of white set off the blue nicely.

    It is beautiful. We can be way too critical of our quilts. I always figure that I have to wait a few days and then look at it from a distance to get any sort of realistic view! It is wonderful! Thanks for sharing.

    I haven't seen the pattern before, but I think your color selection is just fine. I like it. I like the panto your LA quilter used too. Compliments it nicely.
