Stained quilted


Its taken a while, but my Stained is now quilted


In keeping with the whole beach theme I decided to FMQ it with lots of waves


 And, in keeping with reality, the waves vary in size (wish I could say that this was deliberate but just down to my fmq'ing!!)

 There are points in the quilt were it definitely got very choppy (and some of my waves may look like a reading off the machines that you see in hospital with someones erratic heartbeat

 But I love how the quilt has turned out.  I had been putting together lots of fat quarters of beachy themes whenever I saw them


 lots of flip flops and sunglasses

 nautical themes

 beach huts and sand


Its definitely a quilt that I want to takeaway with me this summer when we go and do this again (are you ready Susan.......)

  7. I'd love to have a go at making this quilt. I've even got the pattern for it. But I'm absolutely dire at choosing and matching fabrics. I'm scared it'll turn out rubbish. Poor effort Michala. Yours looks fantastic!
