I made this quilt this summer.
I also played with my daughter. On Cape Cod. My home turf. She helped me take the pictures.
There is only one rule on the Cape beaches:
Ok, ok. Since your sign is so intimidating...
This quilt is made from Elizabeth Fransson's "New Wave" pattern.
I call it "summer surf".
But the best part of it is that it has already brought so many folks so much joy.
It is residing at our house on the Cape, which we rent during the summer, in order to make ends meet.
(there are a lot of ends)
Several guests have commented on it. In a good way.
I like it because I picked the fabrics straight out of my stash,
without knowing what the *beep* I was doing,
and it wasn't until I was sewing the binding on, (sitting at the Lake,
while I had some rare down-time) that I thought:
this quilt makes me think of summer, Cape colors, waves, and ocean sunsets.
I love this quilt for more than just its quiltiness.
I love the pictures it has given me.
The time with my daughter it has given me.
The new appreciation for orange it has given me.
The ability to love something from afar.
I love more than just the quilt.
