They were such a surprise as they are not what I usually associate with coastal flora.
Although they look so delicate and fragile, with their silky petals, they seemed to stand up surprisingly robustly against the wind and rain.
I love those colours against the sand and sea.
This little quilt is at about 12 inches square. It is pieced, quilted, appliqued using Oakshott shot cottons, and embroidered.
