Little Sailor Blue

A quilt made for a good friend, in record time. I've always wanted to make a sailboat quilt, a little mental calculations, and this cutie is what happened.

Glass Beads

When I started this quilt, I had no idea how it was going to look finished. I had a large bag of scraps, a lot of time, no quilts on order, and I wanted to keep my hands busy. Lots of us are like that, having to keep hands busy.

So I got to work: mixing and matching, coordinating, contrasting, texture, theme, density of color, shades.

And what I ended up with reminded me of beads my aunt and uncle brought back from Morocco 45 years ago. They were called Goulimine beads, I didn't know they were actually made in Europe, I'm sure Aunty and Unk didn't either. I still have them, and cherish them.

So when this quilt was nearing completion, I realized it reminded me of the beautiful beads.

And thus, Glass Beads was born, and finished.

It is hand quilted, queen sized, and for sale
