List of Participating Shops

Here's the quilt from Fabric's Plus in Anacortes. Miss Carol went all out on this one. It was really fun to quilt! My first starfish. I'm always afraid to try something like this. What was I thinking? Cutest crab!Some of the background blocks. No quilt is complete without some swirly girly quilting! I found some pictures from the participating shops. You don't want to miss out on all of this creativity!

Fabric Etc made a round quilt. Absolutely fab! Go here to see what Keepsake Cottage has waiting for you. The Quilt Shop in Anacortes used blue half square triangles to highlight all of the blocks. Check out what Carrol over at Aunt Mary's Quilt Shop put together. Batiks, storm at sea, & a "to die for"(Kathy that's for you) border!

Go on a small road trip with a friend & checkout all of the shops. You can see all the beautiful daffodils & tulips in the Skagit Valley along the way.

I've been on the computer long enough this morning. Time to get quilting so I can Sail to a few shops this week & enjoy some of this terrific sunshine!

Sharon, I absolutely love love nature, especially water quilts, and of course fell in love when I saw yours. You did a phenomenal job. I love it. I am so glad I found your blog.
