She'd asked for something to go with the beach-themed nursery... they live by the beach so it made complete sense! I decided to do a giant courthouse step quilt, and I reckon it kind of looks like the beach, doesn't it?
I collected a bunch of teals, aquas, and creams in various shades so that it wouldn't look so flat. I love that it turned out like what I'd hoped it would! I quilted it in a simple grid in white thread and bound it in a slightly paler aqua than what I'd used in the quilt. I decided that was the best option because if I used cream, it'd fade into the creams... if I used aqua, it'd fade into the aquas... My thought process is riveting, isn't it?
