Welcome to the final stop of the Summer Sensations Blog Hop. Today is my stop of the hop. Thank you Marian at Seams to Be Sew for sponsoring another Blog Hop and letting a newbie like me participate.
When I think of summer I think of camping. We have already gone camping three times this year. We just came back from our favorite camping place, Assateague Island National Park, this past Sunday. We like Assateague Island because we can do our second favorite summer activity which is go to the beach. So 15 of us piled in cars and went camping on the beach. We had the best time.
Since my sister-in-law has been asking for a beach blanket forever, I decided to make a beach theme quilt. I decided to design one myself. Here's what I came up with.
I originally wanted to do a paper piecing and applique project because I set a goal to do a project using both methods this year.
I'm working on taking better pictures of full quilts so here are some closeups.
I was lucky to win a copy of the Crafted Applique method by Lara Buccella. I used her method to apply the appliques.
