I made this last year after a wonderful trip to the Outer Banks, NC. You can see I entered it in the county fair.
It is embellished with shells I picked up on the shore near Cape Hatteras.
I am feeling inspired by these photos from First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach to create another small beachy art quilt. I will probably use cotton as a base this time and layer on other materials to create my picture.
This cute sailboat may make it into the picture.
I love this line of pilings that extends out into the Chesapeake Bay. At certain times of day each piling is occupied by a pelican or other sea bird. This will feature prominently in my beach quilt. I am thinking of how to construct the pilings in fabric.
I have a handful of small shells and some sand that I plan to incorporate into the quilt. I am thinking of using a layer of sheer fabric with the shells and sand underneath. We'll see how it turns out.
