The Beach Quilt

I finally got another quilt finished and photographed!

BeachQuilt-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

My friend Monica, from West Seattle Fabrics, sponsors our Giveaway Days and sometimes I get a fat quarter bundle as well! Last fall the bundle included fabrics from her Beach Bum shop. I didn’t know what to do with it at first. I’d never made a quilt from a fat quarter bundle before, so what to do?

BeachQuilt-Water-ImFeelinCrafty

Then it hit me! The blue is like water…. The jellyfish are underwater…. So those became the beach and the waves!

BeachQuilt-Umbrellas-ImFeelinCrafty

And the bright colors reminded me of the beach umbrellas!

BeachQuilt-Front-ImFeelinCrafty

So put it all together and a beach scene is what you get! But I like the modern feel of the beach scene. I’ve had some friends not see the beach scene and some do! Perfect! It’s graphic and ‘scene-y’ at the same time! I don’t want it to scream BEACH! I want it to be an abstract representation of the beach.

BeachQuilt-Sand-ImFeelinCrafty

We don’t have the bright white sand and bright beach umbrellas lining the beaches here in Seattle, but it does remind me of warmer beachy climates like back home!

BeachQuilt-Back-ImFeelinCrafty

The back is nice and bright! I used the rest of my fat quarters on the back and added the stripes and bright teal solids.

For the quilting I used a nice wavy stitch pattern. My machine doesn’t have this stitch pattern, but my machine is in the shop. Again, my friends at West Seattle Fabrics gave me a loaner while my baby is being repaired. As much as I hate not having mine, it was perfect timing to get to quilt this one with this stitch I wanted to use!

BeachQuilt-BindingUmbrellas-ImFeelinCrafty

BeachQuilt-BindingSea-ImFeelinCrafty

I struggled with the binding! I really wanted to use my friend Debbie’s matched binding technique, but decided it would be a bit much to attempt for my first time using her fancy binding style! So I decided to pull a color that matched both the ‘umbrellas’ and the jellyfish. And I think it turned out just right!

BeachQuilt-Last-ImFeelinCrafty

I’m debating, publish a pattern of the quilt? Or just enjoy it? I’m going to enjoy it, no doubt! It’s a really simple pattern, so I keep thinking I should share! And as for the fat quarter bundle, well, I used it all! I did have to supplement it for the sand. And for the sand I used an array of creams.

For the fabric patterns, see the post here.

And it’s a finish for my 3rd Quarter Finish Along list! (and maybe my only one!)

I have been compensated with either payment or product for this post. All opinions are my own, honest opinions!

Fabric-GiveawayDay-ImFeelinCrafty

This year I was on vacation when I realized it’s Giveaway Day, so we picked them online. I had just been chatting with friends about the lightening bugs. We don’t have them this far south in ‘Bama, but I always loved going to my grandmother’s house and catching lightening bugs! Then I was going through high school pictures and found a picture of my high school boyfriend coming out of my grandmother’s cellar. I couldn’t figure what he had been doing down there! I realized he was getting a jar to catch the lightening bugs in! Sooooooo…. When I saw the line with lightening bugs, I knew that was the one! And I had to throw in a couple of others to coordinate.

My lovely friend Monica, the owner of West Seattle Fabrics, has once again agreed to give away some fabulousness from her shop! The last giveaway, I soooo wished I could win my own giveaway. Well, it’s true again this year! She’s giving away a package of 5 coordinating fat quarters.

GADay-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

The Fat Quarter bundle consists of 2 pieces from Violet Craft’s Waterfront Park – Breeze collection, the hexi dots are called Reflection and the multi-colored is called Shattered. One fat quarter from the Michael Miller cotton couture solid line. One fat quarter from Joel Dewberry’s bungalow, the herringbone print. And lastly, the final fat quarter is the black gridded print from Timeless Treasure’s Sketch collection!!

GADay-Bundle1-ImFeelinCrafty

I went to the shop the other day to pick out the fabric bundle for this giveaway and I couldn’t decide. The first time I went to the shop I equated it to a candy shop. And for me it is. I can’t make a decision at this place or a candy shop! I want it all.

GADay-Bundle3-ImFeelinCrafty

Anyway… We were standing there chatting and I looked over my shoulder. Monica had these bolts together on the shelf and it was love at first sight! I knew I had to have them! Or at least have them to giveaway to one of you! (Yes, I’ll probably go back and get more for me! 🙂 )
