The sand part of my beach quilts is always the biggest challenge. This is simply because of a lack of sand fabrics. It's not for want of trying; there isn't a decent sand fabric I can find that isn't already in my stash. Are you listening, fabric designers and manufacturers? I have a few great ones (I love the ripples and the footprints) and there are some good novelty sand prints; reasonably realistic toys, beach chairs and huts, and the grasses. But more basic sands would come in very handy. Please?
I might have to come up with a variation on my Seaside style of beach quilt, which needs less sand.
I still have to add a few appliques to this row, but the piecing is done.
