August Redwork block

I can't believe it's August already! This summer has been as busy for me as it's been HOT!

This is certainly not one of the more detailed blocks in the quilt - but I'm fond of it just the same.
As a child - I lived near the ocean and LOVED playing in the sand and surf. Some of my favorite memories are of days at the beach collecting sea shells with my family.

I have the perfect border design in mind for this block already so hopefully I will have an early finish posted here this month.

every quilt tells a story...


  1. You are moving right along! Look forward to seeing how your frame it.

  2. She is so sweet playing on the beach ! Can't wait to see what sashing you choose for this one

  3. Oh, this makes me want to get a shovel and head to the beach! Darling.

  4. This is going to be such a beautiful quilt when all your blocks are put together. Your Sunbonnet Girl looks like she is having fun in the sand.

  5. I don't know where the summer/year has gone either. It seems to be flying!

    I'm looking forward to seeing your finished quilt!

  6. Beautiful. Are you doing reverse applique or regular?
