Shell Scrap

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo 76 Clambones by Kaye England Link to website or photo www.KayeEngland.com What are you most proud of? I'm always thrilled when I can use scraps from my stash only. I used a long-arm machine to quilt the main body of the quilt with an all-over shell design. Then I used my basic sewing machine to free-motion the borders in tiny shell design. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Any colors work in this quilt, However, color value is very important to get good contrast between your shells. I tried to work my shells in rows of light - dark-light- dark... followed by a row of all medium values. I hung my blocks on my design wall as I went because it was the only way I could keep straight in my mind what needed to come next.
