The third Project Quilting Challenge is Virtual Vacation.
My usual constraints applied - start with orphan blocks and end with buttons.
These look like sand and sea - we're good to go! Adding lots of sand, a little more sea, sun, and sky, and we have a top.
Wavy line quilting across the entire top- sunset colors for the sky and top of the water, teal for the water, and sand for the sand.
And it's done. One big mother-of-pearl button to represent shells that wash up on the shore and it's done.
Not a *literal* representation, but the colors and feeling of my favorite part of favorite vacation- early morning walks on the beach. This, then, is FloraBama Sunrise. And the wonkiness isn't the photo- the top edge and first couple of inches down is square, but after that I just trimmed along the edge and if it waved and curved, that's how I bound it. Size is about 12 x 20.
