How about making this Beach Hut mini art quilt.
Naturally I have used had painted fabric, but any fabric can be used.
I am not going to give sizes. Make it any size you wish.
The only thing to remember is that you need two pieces of sky fabric exactly the same size.
one strip of sea fabric
one strip of sand fabric
a selection of scraps for the beach huts
Piecing the background
Right sides of fabric both facing up, place them one on top of the other.
Using a ruler and rotary cutter, slice diagonally through the two layers of fabric.
Move your cuts out from the inner corner to the outer corner in increments just remembering to make them wide enough to allow for the seam allowances which will come later.
Now alternate the pieces of fabric like shown.
When stitched together it will look like this.
But can then be trimmed to look like this.
Those observant among you will notice that this one is the sister of the previous one as you get two for the price of one with this method.
Now add your sea and sand strips, in whichever order you like.
Here the sea is behind the huts,
and here it is in front of them.
Next time stitching and applique of the huts!
