The theme is Beach]Underwater. I made a Storm at Sea quilt because it reminds me of how I think of the beach. I love watching storms on the Oregon coast.
The total size of the quilt is 8 inches. There are 145 pieces including the border. I paper pieced the mini. I will be giving it away to my partner. I hope she likes it. Sorry the pictures are fuzzy. It was taken late at night.

Years ago I started on an applique project. My criteria was
1. The 18 inch background would be scrappy tan neutrals.
2. ALL applique would only be scraps cut from the stash friends gave me.
3. I would use bright colors.
I decided that instead of starting the new projects I would finish this one.
I have 2 blocks prepped for the sewing stage and 5 with the backgrounds all sewn. Here are pictures of the 5 blocks I have finished and the book.
Wish me luck!

I couldn't have asked for a better day. The weather was great and I cherished the time I spent with Katrina.It is nice to put faces to names of people you talk to.

I had a good "Private retreat" this weekend. Instead of finishing UFOs, I started a new project. I made 8" house blocks, 22 in one day and cut out the 8 that I needed. I only sewed 2 of them. I will finish the other 6 tonight. I was thinking of making them into a "Twist and Turn" quilt, sort of Dorothy's house in The Wizard of OZ. More on it later.
I will try to add pictures of the 22 house blocks. Wish me luck.
