By the Sea exchange


Nic received the Hooked on Exchanging (HoE) exchange I sent, so I can show a photo now. This is She Sells Seashells by Country Cottage Needleworks. The back of the little pillow has a pretty blue-green fabric similar to the ones I sent her. It's so nice having a quilt shop in town now!

This was a fun stitch. I replaced the Crescent Colors with Weeks Dye Works. CCs bleed so easily that I'm afraid of using them anymore. I think I used an entire skein of amber for the sand! I changed up a few colors because I'm not fond of persimmon.

Lovely fabrics ... you are so right about being lucky to have a quilting store nearby ... having the Happy Quilter only 10 miles down the road almost makes up for the lack of an LNS within 50 miles.

And the pillow is just fabulous.

That is an awesome finishing job! Adorable!

I agree on the CC. I am trying to use up what I have and will not be buying more. But their silk line, the Belle Soie, is to dye for. Yeah love their silk, hate their cotton...makes no sense!
