This quilt has been such a fun sewing project for me the past few weeks.
I fell in love with that one amazing little doily in the center while out antiquing recently, and the rest of the quilt grew from there. The quilt is grey
linen on one side, and white swiss dots on the other. The circles of fabric - some new, and some feedsack - are all hand or machine appliqued, with some embroidery in there as well. And with a layer of
cotton batting on the inside, it's very cozy. I could get attached to this one...
The beach was the only place I could imagine photographing this one, so that's where we headed this weekend. The beach was empty, and it was cold, cold, cold. But despite the cold (I knew it was time to stop photographing when I couldn't feel my fingers anymore!) and the early setting sun (really? 4:00?), it was beautiful there and I do believe the quilt got a little Maine beach blessing in the breeze before it will head out into the world somewhere else.
I'm very excited to share with you the rest of what I've made for The Shop - I've had a lot of fun putting this collection together. And no worries - there will be much more than quilts - with prices starting at $18 on up. So, yes...11 am EST tomorrow - (Tuesday) in this location. I'll post here when it's all up and live!
