MEMORIAL WEEKEND AND THE BEACH

It is the Memorial weekend here in the US. Here in MD it is the weekend that traditionally all outdoor pools open and the beach season officially begins. I will neither be going to a pool or heading to the beach, but I do have a quilted beach scene to share with you. This small wall quilt was made from a pattern designed by Carol Doak. It is all paper pieced. I find paper piecing a relatively quick, easy and precise way to piece quilts.

I hope you all have an enjoyable and relaxing Memorial Day weekend and please don't forget to reflect on the reason we celebrate this holiday and remember in thought an prayer those who have given their life on the battlefield while serving our country and also the family and friends they leave behind.

I would love to make something like that beach scene for a dear friend. Is the design in a specific Carol Doak book? Please tell! - Ellen
