Beachin’ Quilt

Summer means sailing for me along with outdoor movies by the water, picnics, the beach, great parties, and so on. This year I’ve invited three of our grandchildren to spend two weeks with us and have enrolled them in sailing classes. Kayleigh, Andrew, and Cam are 14, so two weeks with three teenagers ought to be a blast!

To prepare for the kids’ arrival this Sunday, I’ve made each of them a gift which works perfectly as it coincides with their birthdays. The gift includes the sailing lessons, a quilt I’ve made, matching pillowcase, and new beach towel. Today, I’ll share the first of the quilts and pillowcases.

This is Andrew’s quilt made from Crazy OldLadies pattern called Beachin’. The quilt is made pretty close to the same design as depicted on the pattern front as I loved the combination of the varying colors and prints. The fabrics are Shore Thing by Emily Herrick for Michael Miller Fabrics.

I used Michelle’s Magic Pillowcase tutorial to match the quilt. Tomorrow I’ll share Kayleigh’s quilt gift—I hope the kids will enjoy these gifts of love from their grandparents.

Hi Junie, What wonderful gifts and memories for your grandkids! You don't happen to live in Tampa, do you? The pictures look like sailboats at Davis Islands Yacht Club. Lynn

You are one super-grandmother! What great gifts to your grandchildren, both the quilts and the time and sailing lessons.
