Beach Theme Quilt

I am pretty confident that the wedding couple don’t read my blog, but just in case I will not say my initial emotions on the wife-to-be’s requested “white and tan” quilt. Although, I guess you can read between the lines so I might as well say it seemed a little boring to me. The husband-to-be enlightened Paul a little by saying they had a beach theme in the bedroom, so I got a lot more excited to make something with a theme. And it is always better to make a quilt they will use than make a quilt they want to hide so, I picked up an ivory flat sheet at Ikea and the below fabrics at Joann’s Fabric. img_1024

I am toying with trying to bleach the shell fabric. Just to lighten it a little. But maybe I can work it in to a pattern without making it look totally foreign. Anyone out there tried to artificially fade a quilting cotton?

**UPDATE*** See finished quilt here***
