    Beaches, my most recently finished comfort quilt

    This quilt is finally finished and off to comfort the one for whom it was made. I'm so happy with the final results, even tho it gave me fits and I had to redo it 4 times before I could get it to come out with square corners for the borders. I did a lot of outline quilting on this one. I also had fun with my free motion foot writing on some of the blocks. It says, "warm sand on my toes..." on the flip-flop block; "shells" on the purple shell block and "Beaches" on the brown dotty rectangle at the top. Name:  Beaches, finished.jpg

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Love it! Is the backing fleece? If so, how did you keep it from bunching up and forming "pleats" in the stitching?

    It turned out wonderful! This should bring lots of comfort to the recipient. You put a lot of time and thought into this quilt and it really shows!

    There's no pattern. Linda got a bunch of beach related pieces of fabric from Board members and this is the result. She did a fantastic creative job.
