While we were at the beach, I finished up a quilt for my friend Tracy's soon-to-be-arriving little boy. I used the same line of fabric from this quilt I made last fall. It was a fairly simple quilt to put together. I used this tutorial, with just a few modifications. I used a 5" square for the center block, and adjusted the surrounding rectangles to 2.5x5" and 2.5x9" for a finished 8 1/2" block. It was fun taking pictures at the beach instead of my backyard (especially given the nautical nature of the fabric), though I'm sure the other folks on the beach thought I was crazy! I'm really happy with how this one turned out, and I'm excited to start up the next one!
