Looking Back

Several years ago I made a quilt for my
Best Girl Friend
(I didn't take pictures! Oh NO!!)
and had some left over blocks.
These blocks kept screaming
to me.

I took those left-over blocks and sewed them together
into a table runner size piece.

Then I appliqued fish, clams, sea horses, a starfish and sea grass
and had a ball.
I machine stitched water and more sea grass onto the piece
after the applique was complete.

 I was so excited with how it turned out.

Then I tried to decide where to put it.

I carried this runner around my house a number of times,
trying to find a place that would display it.

I didn't want to cover the fish and shells up with
"Table stuff," so I kept looking.

Finally I decided it wasn't going to work on a table,
I hung it on a wall.
Yep... stuck a few pins in it to anchor it to the wall
and it hangs in my hallway.

I love it!

(I really need to take a picture of the original quilt
since this looks NOTHING like it!)

Happy Quilting!

Isn't it funny how fabric "speaks" to you? I wouldn't want to cover up those cute embellishments, either. Great job, great solution!

What a cute way to use up those orphan blocks. Love the applique! This would be perfect in my beach-theme guest bathroom. You've given me some ideas here.
