For lack of a better name I'm calling this quilt Scrappy Squares. It just seemed to fit.
I managed to add the last border so the top is now done!
Thank you, Susan, for sharing this feather fabric with me! It is from Windham's Wm. Penn's Vision line designed by Patty Harants. I am so happy to have finally found the perfect place for it :)
I added corner blocks using the same squiggly fabric as the inner border.
Summer time in NJ brings back memories of the shore.
I made Summer Serenity in 1984 after seeing an Amish family at the beach. It was a sight I will never forget. This quilt was published in Quilt Art Calendar in 1987 and Quilting by Laurie Swim in 1991. It was the only quilt I ever entered in the Vermont Quilt Festival and it won a blue ribbon in 1989 :)
A couple of years ago I took photos of two panels of a collaborative effort of quilts portraying the boardwalk in Ocean City, NJ. The Strand Theater was made by Pat Kline of Marmora, NJ.
. . . and Shriver's was made by Debbie Lombardozzi of Ocean City. It is the oldest business on the boardwalk and known for their homemade salt water taffy.
I hope you are getting in some good summer time quilting!
See you on the 4th!
