Kathy’s Seaside Town

Kathy makes fun, modern, funky quilts and loves custom quilting on them. This seaside resort town quilt is no exception. Seaside resort town quilt


She originally asked for flying pelicans in the sky above the town and I couldn’t find one to save my life. I only found one and it was sitting on a pier- not exactly a motif I could put up in all that white space!

I used some freehand swirls to give the air some movement.

Love it!
