This quilt was made with cobblestone blocks swapped through online group, SCQ (Southern Cross Quilters). The theme was 'blues and sandy colours' and each person swapped a 'set' of two blocks - one positive and one negative version of two fabrics. This is an amazingly adaptable block and so easy to make.
Beaches 160 cm x 120 cm
Most of the centre blocks were swapped, but I made most of the surrounding border blocks and all the turquoise and blue blocks at the bottom. Speaking of bottoms, I decided to leave the lovely ragged wadding hanging loose because it kind of reminded me of splashing surf! One day I'll get over it and bind it properly, but for now it makes me giggle ...
