~ Pink Sand Beaches ~

In honor of the Month O' Pink ... I offer up some pink quilts. This one is part of my Sea Quilt series, which means it involves The Sea and more than likely, it also involves ... Dots.

This one was started in 2009 and finished in 2011. That's rare for me, but a lot of life and one great big move accounts for that year in between.

The borders and the back (seen here) were primarily from a Moda line of fabric by Three Sisters. If you are a quilter, you probably recognize that.

I don't often put angst into the backing, but I tried to lay this one out so that my quilting of the shells ...

... matched the blocks on the back.

This quilt was made in early 2009 and I call it "Sum Sum Summertime". The houses are paper-pieced. I sure do love paper piecing.

I had been wanting to learn to do a scalloped border for this one, but that piece of schooling never happened. So I made what I like to call a "fake" scalloped border, which actually tickles me pink ... and yellow. Both of these quilts are my own design.

Speaking of moves (and houses) ... today is my one year birthday of the day I moved into this house.

Happy Birthday to Me & My House!

My sailboat quilt was featured over at The Charm of Home!  Is that, not, so charming?
