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!

  6. Great colors! I think it captures the beach just fine. There are all kinds of beaches and not all have white sand and aqua blue waters. This reminds me of a northern beach. Great work.

  7. What a pretty place you picked for your gorgeous quilt photo shoot. That quilt is perfect for your location too. A beach of any kind would be wonderful right now. I'm over the snow. LOL!!

  16. I don’t think I ever would have thought about putting blue and tan together. How wrong I have been to that color combination. I think your quilt top looks great! You were right, that pack was perfect for the salt and sand theme. Going to the park for your quilt photo shoot worked out quite well.
