We’re on the Outer Banks for vacation, but the last few days the wind has been blowing so hard that going out to the beach is like stepping into a sand-blasting cabinet. Thank goodness this is the second week of vacation, and we got a lot of swimming time last week when the weather was perfect. It’s not a complete loss; we went sightseeing instead of beach-going and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and we’ve been staying out of the heat in the RV so I have plenty of quilting time.
Sea and Shore (the obvious project for the situation) is almost ready to put together. Only five more blocks to finish, and then I can do the major layout thing. I was laying out blocks for assembly on the design bed (no room for a design wall) and had a lot of ‘help’. That’s Lilibelle in the photo above. She looks so innocent, doesn’t she?
I am thinking about quilting this with just a flannel backing as a summer spread, but I am a bit concerned about all those lumpy seams with no batting to pad them. J says it won’t be a problem, since we lie under quilts, not atop them. What do you think?
