After finishing Anni's Sunset, I was ready to start something new. Since it had been quite a while since I started something new, I was overwhelmed with ideas. So overwhelmed that I didn't know where to start. I decided to start with nothing, no particular idea that was crowding my head.
I had liked how the neutral stripes in my Random Passion piece turned out. I started making some more and then after sewing, this piece started to form (which happened to end up being related to some of my ideas). I call the above piece, Beach Blue #1. There is machine quilting in the striped areas but I thought it called for some hand quilting in the open area.
I could really use some feedback on whether it was successful or if the machine quilting in that area, as well, would have been better. It is hard to see but there is blue, yellow and off white thread used in those stitches.
