Well I'd been distracted by other projects, and although the applique and embroidery had been completed for Month 11 of Seaside Town, it still needed to be adorned with clam shell waves. I used some pre-cut clam shell applique papers that made this task so much easier! An assortment of blue and grey fabrics were used...
...the clam shell applique papers were fused to the wrong side of the fabric, and cut out with a quarter inch allowance all around. The curved top edge was turned over and pressed into place using a glue stick and Apliquick tools. The clam shells were held in place using a few spots of Roxanne's basting glue, then stitched by hand, using Aurifil 80wt thread and a Clover Black Gold applique needle...
...ohh I do like to be beside the seaside! This quilt is really coming along nicely, and is just like the seaside towns that are local to me - I live just a short drive from Aldeburgh, and Southwold is just a bit further along the coast. Seaside Town is going to look splendid when it's completed. This is a mystery button club quilt by Lynette Anderson Designs, and if you want to take part in this there are details of participating shops on Lynette's website. I bought mine online from Cross Patch, here in the UK.
