EVERYONE JUST LOVES STARFISH!!

A friend wanted me to make a starfish quilt. This quilt has been on my mind, in my mind, never too far from my mind (almost lost my mind) for the last 3 months. The crab came to me while I was sleeping... Now it is gone to the rightful owner and I have made a pattern out of it.
.....
When my son was here, sometimes I would lay on the couch with a problem.....he would ask if I was going to take a nap.... I would answer no but usually would end up with a little shut eye....but....more often than not, the problem would be solved when I woke up. Amazing.
.....
I know this took alittle longer than my friend wanted but hey.....creativity takes time!
......
This quilt can be made into a boys quilt as well, just change the colors, make the bottom half brown, the top blue, the starfish orange (just a thought)....etc. I am going to do one soon (ha!) I am on it...!!

very nice Barb. Did you do the quilting yourself? I think the quilting really "makes" this quilt. It certainly adds a POP to it.

I love inspiration--sometimes it does require some letting go of ourselves and getting out of the way of a good idea. What fun results!
