7 Day Art Challenge: Day 2

It’s been extremely cold–in the teens with below zero chill factor. As March 20 draws nearer, this type of weather makes me yearn for spring, followed by my thoughts of the beach and long summer days. Today, I will share my “Lighthouse Cottage by the Sea” quilt created to commemorate our 30th wedding anniversary trip to Florida.

I considered creating a scrapbook, but instead designed a scrapbook quilt that resembled 35mm film strips and beach memorabilia. I have to share a funny story about the lemonade block. My husband happened to be at Schoolhouse Fabrics with me when I purchase the fabric for this block. He was trying to get sympathy from the sales lady and told her, “I don’t get real lemonade, I only get quilted lemonade.”

Working with the vivid, cheerful colors was a breath of fresh air and filled my heart with joy.
