Seaside Quilt


Back on July 31st I ran across Jaybird Quilt's Blog with her post about buying a quilt. The minute I saw the blocks and fabric I knew I had to have the same quilt. I know, I know, I'm a copycat but I just had to, it was so gorgeous! So, I went on the internet and started buying up blocks of the fabric and even stumbled across a gal on Etsy that had a huge bundle of it. I was fully set to make the quilt. The minute the fabric arrived I started cutting and voile...this afternoon we have a finished quilt!

I took some liberties with the borders since I wanted a wider blue border than the designer had planned and I didn't have the big floral she used on her border but I did have a smaller floral, but other than that, I have the same quilt. Off to the quilter it goes tomorrow afternoon!!! It was hard to get a good picture but I think you can get a good idea of how beautiful it looks...

I love that. The colors are so soothing. Cannot wait to see it finished. That border fabric really ties it all together nicely.
