Meet My Quilt: Sandy Beach
Sandy Beach is a wall hanging I designed for Down Under Quilts. I had a sketch in my journal (below) of a seaside memory box full of interesting objects
The pattern is applique shapes on top of a memory box background
And the applique pieces are many little seaside memories which you can alter and personalize to suit you. Once you get started it can be hard to stop. Here I am ironing down a block when I should have been cooking dinner!
Just as I was making Sandy Beach, that was also the time I was having great difficulties with my Bernina 820, it is such a troublesome machine, as you can see below I had a lot of difficulties, and with a deadline to boot! I was not happy...
and made many blocks again and again
If you make this quilt, consider sending me a picture of your work, I'd love to see it!
