Beach huts quilt

This started out as a small quilt, which I liked, but I thought the blocks were too big, so I made a load more smaller ones, 80 in all. I put them all together and quilted it... then decided it was too thin, so using all the half square triangles from the roofs, I made another panel. To attach it I placed the wadding next to the main piece and ran a zigzag down it, then I attached the backing, then the front, quilted it and the added the spotty green binding. It has what I call an ice cream blue. It is single bed size.


  1. I really like how you added the extra panel to this quilt. It adds a pretty modern touch!

  2. This is lovely and I really like your wall hanging in the post below - and at last we have some real sunshine too :)

    1. Ah, thank you. It is nice having some sunshine to enjoy, though it does have the nack of making me feel a bit guilty when I'm inside sewing and it's shining brightly in through the window :o)
