Sandcastle

My quilt Sandcastle is back from the LAQ.  As always, Cathy Kirk did a beautiful job.  




The quilting pattern was called Waterworld, and was an edge to edge design.




My next step in the process (besides the binding) is to embellish the castle a bit.  I'm going to do simple things like embroider the flagpole.   But I am also thinking about other more elaborate things - perhaps adding some words.  I see a lot of blogs lately talking about adding embroidery to the quilt and I want to give it a try.




This quilt is 56 inches square.  I used batik strips for the border and my own sandcastle design for the center.


Happy Stitching!

  5. I really like that border and the way the castle sits in the open area -- I know, the sand.
