Home by the Sea
I'm reworking this pattern. Many quilters have contacted me and requested the pattern for the original quilt, "South Shore Road" which appeared as a series quilt in Quiltmaker magazine in 2004.
I've changed it a bit, lightening up the background sky color, simplifying the border, and using quick piecing directions. The quilt will be a small wall hanging size, 32" x 39".
This is a really fun project to use your scraps. There is a variety of colors and small pieces. I had a lot of fun going through my stash to choose fabulous fabrics, like this bright orange.
*Ruler tip! - Use a ruler size just large enough to accommodate your pieces. This will help you to control ruler slipping while cutting.
I keep my pieces organized by separating them into individual sandwich zipper bags and labelling each piece with a small paper. On the paper, I put the color, patch size, and patch identification number.
As I cut and sort, all my pieces go into a plastic box. The box is labelled with the project name. I also keep any extra fabric in the box with the project, just in case I need to cut another piece. It's so much easier to pull the fabric out of my project box, than to go through my whole stash frantically looking for it again. I was able to choose all the fabrics for this quilt and cut most of them out all in one day.
Have a super day!
