Beach Picnic

 

I was in the mood for a nice summer quilt and when I was looking at inspiration for my bird quilt, I saw a quilt that had a little bird near water, so I decided to make a beach scene.

 

I pieced the background, added a strip for the waves. Then I added the birds and the picnic. 

 

 

I used my usual method of sandwiching first and then securing the applique with quilting stitches. 

 

 

I quilted some waves in the water.



As per my usual M.O. , I finished this quilt late at night so these photos are taken with artificial lighting.



And as usual, I did not quite finish the quilt. I still need to add the binding. I might add some other things too to finish up.


 
I will post better reveal photos when the quilt is actually finished.
 


I hope you enjoyed seeing the quilt. I enjoyed making it.

I posted the links to all of the other participants yesterday. Please visit them and comment to let us know what you stopped by.
