Mom and I took a VERY short walk on the beach tonight. Was a little colder than yesterday, and with our sandals on it felt even colder! Now for some freshly baked cookies and a movie!

Mom and I are at the ocean for community sew days making American Hero Quilts at the Pacific Beach Resort. We arrived this afternoon and have already taken a walk on the beach and started some projects. Above is a miniature version of the quilt I made for Andrea for Christmas. I had some scraps leftover, so I used them to do the same pattern (disappearing nine patch), only smaller.
Below are our shadows on the beach. What a beautiful day! The sew days are over at 4pm each day so we will have time for evening walks on the beach, weather permitting!

This quilt was made for a friend who just returned from a year in Iraq. I needed a class sample for a class I gave at Tacoma Community College. It was a good opportunity to get two things accomplished at once. Jamey saw the Navy emblem fabric at the American Hero Quilt sew day, so I decided to use it on the label. The Primitive Heart quilt is a good pattern to teach "on point" setting technique and is always a good showcase for special fabrics.
