She Sews Seashells on the Seashore

"She Sews Seashells on the Seashore," 24" x 18", made by Pam Geisel, October 2010

For this art quilt I pieced blue fabrics on an angle from dark to light, then I pieced the blue fabrics to a tan fabric that had a small print on it that reminded me of sand.

I quilted the water part stitch-in-the-ditch then put some very small seashells on the sand part, covered it with a tan tulle, and stitched around the seashells to keep them in place. I attached a few tiny white beads along the quilting line.

I added some lace where the water meets the sand, which also covered the raw edge of the tulle then I added a binding to the quilt.
