little beachy beauty

17 August 2008

so after months of this being completed,
i can finally unveil it to the blogging world.

why couldn't i before???
well this was my momma's birthday present.
and she's an avid p.s. i quilt reader.
{hi momma!!!}
so this little beachy beauty had to stay under wraps.

my inspiration for this little table topper was charleston.
why charleston???
that's where my momma lives.

please forgive the picture, it was taken via momma's blackberry.
and the charleston sun wanted to shine through that window SO bad!!!

this is one block from pat sloan's big block beauty.
{june 08' american patchwork & quilting.}
can you tell i LOVE making this block???
i think i've made it...4 times now. lol.

tomorrow i get to make a gynormous fabric order.
AND another pat sloan book.
but more on that tomorrow.

hope everyone had a great weekend.

Pin It!

It's beautiful! That's a great idea to use one block as a table topper.

I have never made that block, but my friend has, and she likes it, too. I guess I should give it a try.
