A blog about quilting, stitching and embroidery by the sea --
Even if it is only a state of mind.

Baby Quilt Pictures
A few months ago, my aunt asked me to make a baby quilt for her best friend's expectant daughter. After sorting through all of my books and searching the Internet for patterns, we decided on a free pattern from Quiltpox.
Over the weekend I finished piecing the top. Now if I could only decide how to quilt it . . . .
I have been involved in some sort of handwork most of my life -- sewing, counted cross stitch, embroidery and quilting. I love the sea and all things that you think of when someone mentions the "sea" -- the feel of sand between your toes, watching waves crash against the sand, lighthouses or the sunrise on an empty beach. I have traveled the East Coast and Great Lakes to visit and photograph lighthouses. Someday I hope to incorporate those pictures into a lighthouse photo quilt.
