A pic of the 1st beach quilt I made when I first starting making quilts (1980's). I did a series of 3, inspired by shells washing up on the beach. I sold 2 but still have this one. It's up on the wall & I enjoy it everyday.
My family had a bungalow at the 'shore', as we call it in New Jersey. It was those beach memories that got me going in the direction of coastal art, even to this day.
