I hope you are enjoying your time At the Seashore whether that time is truly at the shore or time spent dreaming and stitching some blocks. My name is Denniele Bohannon. You may know me as Louanna Mary Quilt Design. It is exciting to share with you my block called Summer Romance!
Hello! I’m Heather Long of Coffee and Quilts and I’m thrilled to be part of this summer’s quilt-a-long. Each summer, my husband and I follow his family’s tradition of going to Vinalhaven, ME. My father-in-law’s birthday is on the Fourth of July and we all enjoy watching the fireworks. I designed this block, Summer Sparklers, in honor of my father-in-law and his festive birthday. The gorgeous blues and greys of Origami by Janet Clare were the perfect choice of fabrics for Maine – cool and restful.
Welcome to the seashore! I always enjoy a cool treat on a hot summer day, and what better than a twin popsicle to share with a friend? This fun block was made with Ruby Star Society fabric and is the perfect addition to a beach getaway.
Hello from the beach! It’s a lovely morning and we hope you are enjoying the sunshine and waves. Today is our Question and Answer post – where we answer the most frequently asked questions.
I absolutely love where I live. I live about 15 miles due north of the Pacific Ocean in Southern California. My house is nestled in a valley of the quiet Santa Monica Mountains, but I know the ocean in Malibu is a quick 20 min drive away. The salty sea air and the whip of the wind bring me right back to my childhood growing up on the Atlantic Coast, splashing in the waves, building sand castles, and eating lots of salt water taffy. When the sand hits my toes, I know that all will be right with the world and my frustrations melt away. It’s our family’s go to place for sunset picnic celebrations (wrapped in quilts to keep warm!), tide pool adventuring and just relaxing while watching the local surfers catch the next big wave.

Hi, Everyone! It’s Jessica here – @jessicadayon– today sharing one of the setting options for our Summer 2019 QAL. Are you excited for our summer camp Quilt Along this year? I had a blast last year and am excited for this year too! I am so exited that we can offer you different quilt settings and lots of blocks to put in them. You can truly customize this quilt to be exactly what you’d like it to be.
Welcome to the 2019 Moda Bake Shop At the Seashore Quilt Along! All summer we will be sewing 12” blocks with the goal of making a sampler quilt at the end of the summer. Unlike previous sew alongs, we decided to change things up a bit and show our setting options first. This allows you to plan ahead with your fabric purchases and lets you squeeze in filler blocks as you have time! So, grab your suntan lotion and sunglasses and join us at the shore!
Sailing Flag Sampler was inspired by the nautical flags you often see on boats, docks or marinas. I have always thought they look like tiny quilt blocks and knew right away I wanted to incorporate them into my design.
This is our fourth year quilting along and the number of participants gets bigger every time! We are so happy to have all of you join us. Read on for some information that will answer a lot of your questions and help get you ready for a summer at the beach!
