My Beach Quilt

"Piecing  quilts is like living life...

The Lord sends us the pieces, but we can cut 'em out
put 'em together pretty much to suit ourselves..."
Many years ago I brought fabric home from the beach
{9 yards}
and made the quilt in the picture above.

I pieced the quilt, using 100% Hawaiian, cotton fabric.
The middle layer is cotton batting
the backing is blue, floral, cotton from Honolulu.
I love this quilt.
It is the only quilt I have ever made, "just for me."

You know that the temperature 
is around freezing in Dallas,
because the beach quilt is on the bed.
{and it is amazing to spoon under}

I wish you sweet, warm, "beach-quilt" nights.
Love you,
