Summer and the Sea

Last week we were in Florida on a family vacation. We took all the kids, and the one grandchild, to Seagrove, Florida for a week on the beach. It was just lovely to all be together. A little piece of heaven for the summer. But in the meantime I have been sewing like crazy. My team teacher wanted a "beach" theme baby quilt, so here it is. I had lots of trouble finding beach fabric a few weeks back and now I have seen lots more, but oh well. I think I will quilt it with waves across the front.

I also quilted up this sweet little girls quilt. I also finished a little boy one but I gave away right away. forgot the picture!
I was also inspired by Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom quilts and I have stepped out of my comfort zone. I put together some BOY colors and will donate this when it is finished to her chosen charity, Margarets Hope Chest. It was a little scary but I will be able to finish it. I figured green and brown were camo, woods type colors. It is all scraps left in my stash. It's kind of growing on me.
And lastly some lovely pictures from the beach. I am blessed.
We rented a paddle board and all the kids got on and had lots of fun. we are all tan now.
Oh, I just love summer!
