Mostly Batiks with other fabrics to complete the idea for the wedding on the beach themed quilt. The back was unbleached muslin to give the look of beach sand. I hand stamped beach "type" themes on the muslin.
What was your inspiration?
My Daughter's best friend in college (and my 2nd daughter). This was a gift to the couple for their 1st anniversary of their wedding on the beach here in Florida.
What are you most proud of?
It was so much fun to search for all the right fabric I needed to make this quilt, so that it would be a true memory for the couple of their special day.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Have fun, be careful when sewing all sides of the square that is cut on the bias. They can stretch so easily. This is where the batik fabric worked so well. This material is structured very tight and this causes it to NOT stretch as much as most fabrics. I love it:+)
