“California Dreamin” – Original Quilt Design

California Dreamin Quilt

Quilt Inspiration – The colors of the surf and sand. I used two charm packs in shades of blue and yellow by Stonehenge to design a quilt that reminds me of a warm day on a California beach. I set half square triangle blocks in a fishhook pattern, randomly mixing the different shades of blue and gold together.

To make the back interesting, I used leftover half square triangle blocks, along with leftover fabric strips and fabric left over from the binding to make the blue and yellow stripes.

The quilt was longarm quilted with an edge to edge swirly wave patter by Longarm Quilting of Chadds Ford.

I photographed both sides of the quilt along the California coast in the Monterey area when I was attending an Empty Spools quilting class.
