Life at the Beach

The title of this blog post is where I want to be at the moment :-), but instead of that I am in my - very hot - studio working on a new quilt. The theme for August for Sky is the Limit is Life at the Beach and I decided that I want to do some strip piecing for this quilt. Here is what I have done so far:
The fabric I am using is a discharged one. I remember that I tied knots in the black kona and that it took so long to unravel those knots that the fabric was actually way to much discharged. But never throw away a fabric because it did not turn out how you wanted it. It has the perfect color and design to be fabric for a sandy beach.
Two strips are pieced, four more to go. I am linking this post to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday.

I have been trying to do some landscapes using strata, I am looking forward to seeing how this piece comes together!

I'm thinking that fabric will do weel for a beach...whether or not you are on it! :-)

I love when fabric you think isn't exactly what you were expecting suddenly becomes the star of the show! Can't wait to see more progress!
