Design Wall Monday 7-30-2012 Beachy in progress

Last week my version of Karen Stone’s Beachy re-emerged from the UFO pile. It was started with 2 other quilty friends – we were all making one, in 2004. It was on the design wall until 2005, but then we started building this house, moving into this house, getting married, life in general. It’s now making a comeback

I decided to make it larger than the pattern. All the blocks were finished, with some of the sashing as well. I think I will make additional sashing to make the first border. It is supposed to have a row of 1” squares for the inner border, but I think it will be easier to make the sashings and 4-patch cornerstones. There’s one more pieced border – cut wavey, but it will be straight until after I quilt it.

Thanks to Judy L for hosting DWM.

Happy Quilting,

Becky

Love this quilt, with all the bright colors. My granddaughter would love to have one of those. Sigh, I'll have to get busy one of these days and make her one.
Great job!!
