When my hubby and I returned home from a trip to the Bahamas I kept thinking about the beautiful shades of blue I'd seen in the water and sky. I dyed about five different fabrics with the idea of strip piecing the top and off setting the blocks to create a feeling of movement. The overall look was a little boring so I scattered some large tropical flowers across the design. Some beading and embroidery topped off the design.
"Island Blue" evokes many fond memories of time spent with my hubby on a warm beach with the sound of waves breaking and not a care in the world!
