Sunday Special – Coastal Mist Blog Hop

Welcome to this Sunday Special entry on the blog – I’m thrilled to be participating in the Coastal Mist Blog Hop, hosted by Tammy Silvers of Tamarinis.

Coastal Mist Blog Hop

I’ve had the good fortune to collaborate with Tammy on a number of projects, and I was thrilled to be invited to participate on this latest venture of hers.

Coastal Mist Catalog page

Many of you will know my fondness (ok, obsession) for all things turquoise, and the colors in this line are a lot of fun to play with. Coastal Mist is now available for your local quilt shop to purchase, so it’s a good time to shop!

I selected two of the bright colors and a light for the background, and I knew right away that this was the perfect opportunity to break out my new Quick Curve Ruler© by the ladies at Sew Kind of Wonderful…and play with the options.

This pattern is the free pattern which comes with the ruler, and they do recommend making several trial blocks.  This time I actually did follow the directions, and became more comfortable with the techniques before cutting into the fabric.  I can say that I am looking forward to having this runner on my screen porch table this summer…the colors just make me happy.


This close up gives you a peak at the luscious colors of the fabric – I like the way they balanced out with the design.

I hope that you are following along with the other designers in this hop; I’m included with some very talented designers, and I’ve learned something from every one who is working on this project with me.   Here’s the list so you can pull up a comfy chair, grab a cup of something hot (I’m writing this from NH, and in January, that’s the only way to roll…), and enjoy the eye candy.
