Beach Quilt V

This week I made the latest in the Beach Quilt series.  This might be my favorite one yet.  The fabrics are like sand and sea glass, and the top went together effortlessly, as the warm early summer breezes blew in.

I always change up the stitching a little.  This time I tried using free motion to quilt the wavy lines.  They are not as even as the ones I do with the walking foot, but it was much easier on my shoulders not moving the quilt around as much.  I did all the stitching in Superior’s Living Colors poly thread, with aqua Bottom Line on the back.  It looks like metalic gold, but it is just a golden color, 506.  The backing is a beautiful awning stripe.

  1. Love the colours you chose for this quilt and your description of them!

  2. Truly beachy beautiful. Great quilting!

  3. Absolutely beautiful! Are you using a specific fabric line? I will be on the beach tomorrow thinking of your beachy colors in your quilt!

  4. The colors are perfect for a beach quilt and they go with the pattern. I completed a quilt to hang on the wall and a memory quilt from neckties for my sister-in-law. Tomorrow, I hope to get more UFOs completed.

  5. Beautiful! Yes, those colours are definitely sea glass and sand. Love the palette you chose and will sure to be an attention grabber when you take it to the beach to use. Great finish, Valerie!

  6. The colors are beautiful together.

  7. Love, love, love your beach quilts!
