A Birthday Quilt

Posted by on Aug 15, 2012 in Blog

My wonderful brother-in-law just had a birthday and was long overdue for a new quilt. He was my great behind-the-quilt model for the Star Gazer and By Sea or By Land beach photo shoot and mentioned how much he loved some of the Storyboek 2 prints. He loves to dive and always shares the tasty fish and scallops he gets so it only seemed fair to make him a special quilt.

I used Birch’s Urchin Shells Shroom, Kelp Play, Bubble Play and Bubble Life sashed with Kona Snow.  I love how versatile this collection is and how mature and sophisticated this quilt turned out.

Here is a close up of the quilting. I received a copy of Angela Water’s quilting book for my birthday and used this quilt as a sampler. It is a fantastic book and I can’t wait to show off my new skills on some upcoming quilts.

And of course, I had to include a shot of my little lady, who couldn’t resist being part of the photo shoot.

Happy birthday Uncle Dan, you are the best.

  1. I have not seen this fabric line up close yet but it seems lovely. You have chosen a great pattern to keep this fresh and modern. And great work with the free motion quilting. Love the pebbles to keep with the sea theme. Hope uncle Dan loves it.
