Beach Glass

Available now....
This is Beach Glass, a fun easy quilt
that will look fantastic in any color way
and has many design options!
It came about through a call for 
submissions from Annie's.
They were looking for quilts
that had one block versatile enough
to create multiple quilts just
by "twisting and turning" the blocks.

Once a color way was chosen,
I made a test block to verify
there would be enough value 
I found my perfect fabric with 
Connecting Threads in their
Sea From Space collection
which is All Batiks!
Easy way to verify you are 
cutting in half correctly...
Line squares up on the diagonal. 
This also allows for cutting multiples.

It feels like it was forever ago that 
I made this quilt because it was
done between travel gigs in a 
maddening schedule.
I believe in the photo above I 
am cutting more/bigger squares in half
for setting triangles:)
Such an easy quilt to assembly!
I have noticed that I really enjoy creating
with the sweet and simple half -square triangles.

Here is where the magic will happen!
You will want to play with the blocks
to see what other layouts you can make!
ENJOY the ride!
Model quilted by a professional long arm quilter
with an all over design, Sally by the Seashore
by Christy Dillon of My Creative Stitches.
 Here is the book cover and the beautiful layout
they gave it in the book.
Thank you ANNIE'S!
The link to PURCHASE so you have
all the lovely options and hopefully
create some new ones!
