Sea Glass

The sunshine is dappling the quilt a bit, but I like it. I'm calling this one Sea Glass, just because that's what the colors seem to call it. It is made from drunkard's path blocks (surely there could be a better name!), and I used the Go! cutter to cut them. They went together very easily.

Inside with the sun shining in the window the quilting looks so pretty.

I'm not even going to pretend that my piecing or my quilting is perfect. Not even close.

But my guess is that it will still be a much loved quilt.

The backing is pieced from two Jinny Beyer fabrics, same pattern different colorways.

And here it is without any help from the shadowplay. This one is on its way to a man who richly deserves it. I hope he enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Mr. Muddling has been on vacation this week, but it has been a working vacation for him. He's working on getting that fence put up in the side yard. The hardest part of that job is getting all the ginger lily roots dug up and out of the way! Our dogs are continually searching for something, anything in those ginger lilies and Bruno especially is finding something that is making him itch like crazy. I will be glad when they are totally gone! They made an excellent privacy fence, but it's time now for them to just go away.

After some pretty bad storms on Monday, we've had a beautiful weather week. Cool nights and clear, sunny days that haven't been unbearably hot. 

As you can see, I did get my quilting machine back from the shop and it was not a terrible cost either!  Hallelujah! I'm very pleased with the service where we bought it here in Houston - before, during and after the sale. 

I do hope you're having a wonderful week and getting lots accomplished that makes you happy!

Hugs and kisses,

  4. Sea glass is the perfect name for it, all those gorgeous greens and blues and a bit of the beach grown in for good measure! It's really stunning and I hope the recipient likes it!

  5. Love this quilt, probably my favourite colour combination. Love circles. You did a beautiful job! So, gotta ask, since I think this is my first visit, is Bruno a Rottie? You have a cute Rottweiler pup and oh-so-true saying in the top rh corner of your blog!

  7. Beautiful quilt. It seems we're our own worse critic but I would never be able to find any mistakes in ur work what so ever. My mother used to say, don't mention it and they'll never see it. Lol. Hugs to you. xo

  10. Hello Elaine,

    This is a gorgeous quilt. The colours are really beautiful, and the photo in the dappled sunlight is very effective.

    Love from England, Muv
