What materials did you use? I started with a fabric pack called Don't Be Crabby and added some of my own fabrics.

What are you most proud of? The way it turn out. Block of the month can be difficult and I really didn't do alot of planning. When I got to the flower basket I thought oh no what am I going to do with that in a beachy quilt, so I made it in to a sailboat. Got the pattern from a coloring book.

This is such a fun quilt Janice!! A very special "Beach Blanket"? As for your borders you might consider a solid resting strip in that wonderful bright deep blue and a wider fun print to bring out the reds, greens and oranges? Look forward to the finished quilt :D

That is exactly what it is for a beach blanket! I have figures the borders out. Took it to my local quilt shop and between 5 of us we came up with what we thought was the best look. The outer border is pieced so you will ahve to wait a little to see the finished quilt

What a fun quilt. My first thought was Cape Cod. I am going through Atlantic Ocean withdrawal right now. LOL! I agree with Jean about the deep blue for the resting strip. Play around with fabric for the border. the right one will lump out at you.

I have to say that when I saw the fabric group called "Don't be Crabby" that is what I thought of Atlantic Ocean, the beach and the warm summer sun. When I started this quilt I lived in PA but now I live in Fl so this quilt will get alot of use.
