If you were to look at my Pinterest boards, you would notice a few things about me...I love bird art, ridiculously decadent dessert recipes, and that I'm still redecorating my bedroom. I finished my Ocean Waves Quilt in July and I still haven't been able to hang it in my "new" room! It's been taking a lot longer to redo, but it's going to look awesome when it's finished! I have finished another ocean themed project for my room....my first crocheted afghan!
How is an afghan beachy? Well, it's turquoise and I sewed crocheted "sea pennies" onto the front! It's a pretty simple blanket; I'm just a newbie at crochet! I double crocheted the whole thing. My plan is to use the afghan as a bed runner, atop a white comforter.
I've got beach on the brain! I finally started working on Charlotte's quilt. I am using a pattern I bought last summer in Minnesota. It's called, Breezes. Sharon Huse, the owner of the Old Alley Quilt Shop, told me the inspiration for this pattern was all the huge windmills in the area. If you look closely at the quilt on the cover, you'll notice large and small pinwheels. I'm using beach themed fabrics I bought online. Aren't the flip flops adorable?!
A lot of cutting later....
Finally, one finished block:
I love pinwheels and the beach! How cool is it to mix the two?! I can't wait until it's finished!
Bye for now!
