    I finished another quilt for Christmas last night. This one is titled "Baywatch" and is for a granddaughter and her husband. They lived in the Northeast while she was doing her residency and would go boating often. So, I wanted something with a nautical look. Hubby insisted there had to be a submarine in the water since he is a retired submariner.

    The photos of Baywatch are on page three of my Webshots album 2008 Quilts.

    Awesome job! Yup, gotta have a sub in there!!
    I asked hubby one day that when he's out to sea, can he see the subs "swimming" under him. lol He's on a Sub Tender now and is off subs. I'm sure you've seen the picture of the surface ship and the subs under it.

    Thank you Terri. Does the Navy still offer dependents cruises? I was able to go on the USS Nebraska in 1999 and had a blast. That's one of the nuclear subs. We went out in the Atlantic and down some 700 feet whatever the subs number is.

    Wow, so original! I love the octopus and that pebble fabric! Where did you find that? You certainly have made a lot of quilts this year!

    Wow! That is super spectacular! I'm looking at it and thinking its 2" squares...but how is the lighthouse, sub, etc. put on there? Are they pieced or appliqued or do you have a secret method?? :lol: Inquiring minds want to know :lol:

    Quiltykitty, the way you transitioned from pebbles to sand to sand underwater to clear water, and the waves and water depth - awesome!!!

    Also, your 2007 prize winning quilt is wonderful.

    Denise I agree with you. Landscape quilts are wonderful to make and allow one to use fabric in unusual ways. And they do leave one feeling creative.
