I love looking through the entries for the Blogger's Quilt Festival - so much talent and so many different creative styles. I think it can leave you a bit awestruck but in the spirit of what-the-hell I am entering my Beach Finds quilt in the Mini Quilt category.
This quilt was made for the Holiday Memories competition at Celtic Thistle Stitches. I am fascinated by the patterns, shapes and textures of pebbles and had been collecting them on the beach with my nephew on a family trip to the Isle of Bute.
Since I love them (and my nephew) so much I decided to use some leftovers from a bed size pebbly quilt I'm making and make a smaller quilt as a reminder. This quilt makes me happy because it is a very personal quilt.
I also threw in a tiny clam shell for fun and for practice at FMQ which I am not very experienced at.
Apologies to those who have seen this quilt quite recently, and many thanks if you have dropped over from the Festival to have a look! Hello:-)!
Thank you very much to Amy for the massive amount of work that the Quilt Festival must involve.
