Project Quilting 10-2 Red, White and Blue


Making great use of the Park being closed, I had the chance to be in Florida for this week. I didn't bring any sewing stuff with me at all. I thought I'd just miss this one, but then an idea came to me and with limited materials and sewing by hand, I made a sailboat. 
  I just wanted to take it's picture on the beach, but the winds were SO high today that this was as far as I got without the entire boat flying away. 
  I used pellon stabilizer and quilted each piece of my boat before putting it together. I appliqued on the sails and I added the 98 to represent where I am. US 98, on the gulf coast. 

The waves are really kicked up today too.  Very beautiful as a study in whites and grays.

Just the other night, when the wind was calm, we were treated to a fabulous sunset.

So cute for project 10.2. I love the beach and we go to the Florida beach several times especially each summer.

What a creative project! You have a lot of ingenuity to come up with something on the challenge theme that you had to sew by hand. I love it!
