What was your inspiration?
Going to the beach was always been a big part of my life growing up, and then I moved to the Southwest, I really miss it. So I made this quilt and it reminds me of the fun we had, dragging our pails around looking for crabs under rocks in shallow pools of water. We collected so many crabs and then would race them on the beach, some crawled onto my sun-tanning sister! Those were Great Days!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Create your own memory using the basic pattern.
