Surf Shop Quilt

The third and final quilt in my grandkid series is yet another design from Crazy Old Ladies. Besides the cool name (Crazy Old Ladies) and the fact my wacky old self would probably fit right in with them, I do love the company’s quilt designs which are fun, fresh designs.

This quilt is for Camden (fondly known to us as Cam). The pattern is Surf Shop.

It was fun playing with different fabric prints to make the surfboards. A couple of the boards have Hawaiian flowers I appliqu├ęd as indicated in the pattern instructions.

While each of the grandkids gets a quilt of a particular design I feel suits their personality, I used the same fabric as the binding for all three as well as having my friend Cathy Messner use her long-arm machine to quilt the same sailboat/wave design to give a sense of continuity to the quilts en toto.

Here are all three quilts.

These are the matching pillowcases. I completely enjoyed making these gifts for Andrew, Kayleigh, and Cam. The kids arrive this Sunday evening—I look forward to giving them their gifts and enjoying sailing and other adventures with them for the next two weeks.
