Salt and Sand

As soon as the theme Salt and Sand was announced I had a lot of ideas, however when I think of the beach I usually go to bright colors not blue and tan.  Then while I was still trying to figure out what to make we stopped at a quilt shop not far from home and found an Ebb and Flow charm pack on sale.  Not only was it beach themed it was also the blue and tan.  I got the top made pretty quickly but then projects with a definite recipient plan took priority.   I have the backing purchased, but I wasn't able to get it quilted in time for the blog hop.  I would have loved to go to the ocean for pictures (any excuse for a break right now!) but we haven't been able to do that so I went to a local state park and got some lake shore pictures instead.   Check out all the other blog posts.  You’ll be inspired to visit a beach or quilt; maybe both!

Bind the second quilt for myself-no 2. Finish  at least 2 of the baby quilts in progress- this happened but not until March 3. Make that birthday present I slacked off on last month-I think it’s now a Christmas present... 4. Participate in the Show your Stripes Blog Hop-done, but I’m not sure I managed to read all the other posts 5. Keep up on my mini Monday quilt along-done.  A new clue comes out tomorrow 6. Get a top or two made for Hands2Help 2021.  I just keep adding more scraps to my pile.  I did work on it a lot though 7. I finally gave
