Sea Glass finished!

Hi folks, I wanted to show off a recent finish. My fellow members of the Maritime Modern Quilt Guild already got a sneak peek at this last night at our meeting. This quilt is called Sea Glass and the pattern is by "Talk of the Town" and can be purchased at Craftsy. I made a couple of changes to the pattern but mostly just wanted to increase the size to Queen. So I doubled everything. I probably should have moved the flowers a bit to make it more even but honestly didn't even think of it until it was hanging in the back yard.

I changed the colors and used Kona fabric to go with the cottage where it will live.
The pattern suggested quilting it with ghost petals in between the colored ones.
I loved this as I wanted it to be less stiff than if I quilted the crap out of it.

Pieced the back with the colors from the front. I will add a special little graphic on the back
as requested by the person who commissioned it.
I hope to get a picture in its natural environment this summer. Also, don't know if you noticed but there is actual green grass in that picture (Ignore the yellow grass where my dogs have done their "artwork"). Have a nice long weekend! Don't forget to get some sewing in!

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it Friday!!


  1. I love the "ghost petals" that you quilted. The adjustment in the pattern with change in the flower placement is a happy accident, I think. The flower placement looks so natural going to the edge and not being overly symmetric. This is a great quilt, wish I had one, too!

  2. Love those colors, they are so soothing and peaceful. The ghost petal quilting is a great choice as well!

  3. Awesome!! So glad that we were able to see it in person last night.

  4. What a perfect quilt for a cottage.

  5. I love the echoing of the petals in the quilting. It's very cottage-y - crisp & bright. Good job!
