For this quilt, I used this collection of beachy prints, called "Sand in My Shoes", from Keepsake Quilting. There were forty-two strips, with three of each of fourteen different fabrics. Each strip measured 2.5" x 42".
The blocks are made with 10.5" x 2.5" pieces, with five pieces in each block.
The backing is a bright, mottled purple flannel and was purchased from JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts Store. I also bought the fabric for the border and binding there.
The finished size of the quilt is 53" x 72.5".
I used Warm and White batting, also purchased from JoAnn. The quilting pattern is called "Sea Foam" and I purchased that digital design from Urban Elementz, where I get most of my designs. The thread I used was YLI Pastels cotton.
Here are some photos of the quilt in progress:
And here is the finished quilt.
