    Tranquil Moments Disappearing Nine Patch Quilt

    I recently finished this quilt using the Tranquil Moments fabric. Since it was for my son and daughter-in-law in Florida, this fabric line with the seashells, palm fronds and words like relax, escape, calm, tranquility, etc. seemed like a good choice. I machine pieced the top, had someone else do the machine quilting for me and then I added the binding around the edge.

    You probably can't see the fabrics. The darker turquoise is solid. The cream large block has footprints in the sand and small shells. One of the light turquoise has palm fronds and the other light turquoise fabric has the words mentioned above.

    Those fabrics look great together. I love the pop of the darker teal. They'll love it!

    I always go straight to the photos and then go back and read what is said so I was tickled to see you are in Florida. when I saw the pictures I immediately thought, "beach house"! Great quilt.
