I am absolutely giddy over the fact that my block has been included in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 7!
This new issue will hit the newsstands this week and although the Blog Tour is coming to a close, please look back at The Quiltmaker Blog, Quilty Pleasures for inspiration, fun and those ever popular GiveAways!
Since all of the quilts I make are coastal related ... so is my block. You'll find it on page 43.
After I placed my ship on the water, I decided to add the fish. Once I had done that, I immediately knew that I had a story and that my story had a theme song ... specifically ... the theme from Jaws.

So, I set about making a quilt with my block. The story starts in the bottom right hand corner and moves through the day and into the evening. (Or... it starts in the top right ... however you want to see it/place it.)
As the sky changes, the fish gets closer ... and bigger.
(Or smaller and deeper.)
I'm thrilled to have my quilt also featured in the Designer's Gallery.
Now, I would really love to hear your story.
