Seashells from the Seashore

Welcome back to Design Wall Monday. I’ve been away for a few weeks, so, I don’t have much happening on my design wall. But I did get this little embroidered quilt finished while vacationing in Florida.

The beaches in Key West are littered with bits of coral smoothed by the rolling sea. The colors could make a good palate for a quilt of neutrals. I collected a few shells and pieces of coral with naturally drilled holes in them to string and hang in my home in Kansas.

I enjoyed photographing the tide coming in and/or out. Every once in awhile there was a surprise splash of color left to delight the beachcombers.

Although there isn’t much happening in the sewing room I do have a splash of color on the design wall. It’s made with Marti Michell’s apple core template. Those pieces are about 6″ long.

And tune in to American Patchwork and Quilting Radio later today – I will be a guest with host Pat Sloan where we will be chatting about quilts, fabrics and maybe even pies! If you miss the live broadcast you can catch it later by podcast.

And let’s link in with Patchwork Times today – maybe others are being more productive and you can get a peek on their design walls. Click here to go to Design Wall Monday.
