    My DH, DS,DBIL spent several days at the beach and while everyone was sleeping in, I finished up some of my WIP's. Here are pictures. I have about 3 more Quilts for Kids that I finished plus another flannel quilt for foster kids. I'm thinking the ocean right outside our door and views from giant picture windows on 2 walls inspired me! :thumbup: I'm wondering if DH will take me back to the beach next week???? :-P :roll:

    I love them all but esp the first two. I just love the 16 patch with the pinwheel pattern.

    Wonderful projects Feathers. I like the Tile Tango pattern. The colors in the scrappy one would be perfect for my sister...she loves purple. What size is it? Thanks for sharing your work.

    Sometimes a little inspiration does us all a lot of good. Quilt shows, tv shows, tile floors (hey, it has inspired some) and the peaceful scenery can help us all. How many will your condo hold . . maybe a little quilters retreat . . hint hint . . lol

    great work on the three quilts!!

    Boy, the beach has quite an effect on you. Maybe it would work for me too. I sure have lots of UFS's that need to be finished. My husband likes to saltwater fish, so maybe I cna workout a deal with him. We'll both retreat.

    REALLY like that second one that looks like chocolates in a Valentine box! all of them are great ... nothing spurs the creativity like the vistas of an open sea, mountains, and nature, eh?

    Wonderful quilts. You have done many quilts for kids. I have to get mine finished (just need to quilt, bind, and wash). Then get going on the one from my stash....Maybe I can get my husband to whisk me away for a WIP weekend>>>

    So what beach were you at? Maybe I can go there and work up some beautifal quilts as you have done. Nothing better than listening to the ocean. When I lived in the Seattle area I spent alot of time at Ocean Shores. Beautifal place.
    Great job on the quilts. :thumbup:

    I just LOVE the Scrappy quilt! I think the Pacific NW ocean would just invite me to stare out at it all day. But it sure inspired you to be industrious! Beautiful!

    Beautiful quilts. Nothing like the ocean to give us inspiration.
