A Summer Sea




Blues and greens of a summer sea.
Still reflections in a bright acquamarine swimming pool.
Shadowy olive greens of a local river picnic spot.
An icy frosted glass of lemonade.
The water lilies, with the goldfish darting in and out of the weeds in the pond at Moenui.
These things are what I thought about when making this quilt.
It was fast and easy and the fabrics came to life very simply in squares.

How absolutely gorgeous, makes you just want to wrap up in it outside somewhere with a glass of lemonade and a good book...

it is great, and I love seeing it hanging ourside, blowing in the breeze. I bet you are making all the northern hemisphere people jealous :)
