The Salt Marsh Near First Encounter Beach is going to Paducah!


I learned yesterday that I'll be sending a quilt to the American Quilters' Society show in Paducah, Kentucky.  It's a big show, and I am very honored to be a semi-finalist.

Congratulations! Can you tell me, are your quilts constructed in columns, rows or large patches? Thanks.

To answer your question, I make a small unit comprised of 7 pieces as the basic building block of the piece. After I've arranged them (hundreds of them) on my design wall, I start to sew them together in sections. I wrote a detailed post about making this quilt (with pictures) at https://heatherquilts.blogspot.com/2016/09/bloggers-quilt-festival-salt-marsh-near.html
