Beach Huts and the Seaside

I made good progress with my projects while I was away in Norfolk. I finished a block and a mug rug for the Global Piecers' swap, while I can't show you as I only posted them off to South Dakota today.  On the first day I also did the centre of my beach hut quilt:
I was pleased with how it went together as the last time I did an Attic Window block it was a bit of a mess. This time I was very much more accurate with where I stopped and started the stitching. 
On day two it was a fairly straightforward process to add the border fabric, with four more mitred seams. 
I now need to make the "quillow" part of the project and get quilting. 
It wasn't all stitching though. I was joined by Sara and Sam for the weekend and we were joined by the sunshine so headed to the beach. 


  1. You have had a wonderful time at the seaside with quilting and playing in the sand. The Attic window quilt is perfectly charming and will look good in your summer home, I bet.

  2. Love the attic window, I thought of lots of fish tanks lined up together !

  3. I really love how the borders work on that quilt. Around now I could use a bit of warm sunny beaches.

  4. I love your beachy quilt/quillow and well done on the attic windows. How wonderful to be at the sea again! (We're going at the weekend. Yay!)


I really appreciate your lovely comments, ideas and opinions, they make my day. Thank you for visiting Piece'n'Peace,
