|Val's block--where's the orange?|
|Karan's block--wish you could see the lenses!|
|Shirley's bathing beauties block!|
It reminds me of my days of swimming lessons. Walking out to the pool, you entered through a wooden gate. Through the slats, you could see people hanging about the water.
|Linda's duel cross block with a chain!|
So I tried to treat this block like she might have quilted it. I kept the background in vertical or horizontal lines; used continuous curves in the white squares if they weren't part of the secondary cross unit and quilted an X in the red squares. The two outer white squares, I quilted with a continuous curve and an X.
The red crosses utilize horizontal lines in the horizontal bar and a flying geese shape in the vertical bar. There were a ton of stops and starts with this quilting pattern; but, I like how it turned out!
|Signe's lifeguard chair at the beach block!|
When I was a kid, my grandparents often would take the grandkids to the beach. I remember playing in the sand making all sorts of sand castles. I quilted arcs in the sand area to represent the sand dunes that are along the Oregon coastline. Her use of the buoy fabric for a ring buoy is darn cute!
I like the fabrics she used in her lifeguard chair! Although, in my guarding career, I didn't like sitting in the chair as I felt if I had to make a rescue, I'd hurt myself getting down!
|Roberta's sand castle block!|
I stitched a cross hatch in the background. I stitched around the center motifs and added some quilting so the hearts.
This makes 33 of the 42 blocks completed! By my next update on this project, I'm planning to share the quilting on the final nine blocks. Guess, I'd better stop writing and get quilting!!!
