Sea Glass

 eileen1

This is Eileen’s Sea Glass quilt that she made from Kim Brackett’s book Scrap-Basket Beauties.  She used a variety of greens and a few brown fabrics that were a mix of regular cotton and batiks.   The backing is a soft green/grey Stonehenge fabric.

The pantograph is called Flirtatious, I used a medium green So Fine thread and the batting is Quilters Dream Blend.

Doesn’t that lake look so inviting!   My husband has been catching Northern Pike off the dock ( catch and release) and I think we will get the kayaks out of storage and go for a paddle this weekend if it is calm.   The lake is 52’F so still quite chilly!
