"Butts On the Beach" - 1

Hi There!

Remember that "Pledge Promise"?

Well, here goes....

A certain friend ... *clearing my throat*...
encouraged me? - no.
enticed me? - no, not quite.
tricked me? - no, that's not it.
bullied me? - YAH!!!


Anyhow, I got the "Clamshell" collection from Inklingo and really wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with it. I didn't want to make a whole quilt - mini or not, just with clamshells.

Well, I thought long and hard and finally came up with two ideas. The first one is the one that I will share with you.... especially since I'm not quite sure how this will turn out and I'll be needing some of your feedback.


My first one is about some "naked" butts, on the beach.

Sooooo, I went and ordered a package (10 per package) of skin tone fabrics from "Keepsake Quilting" and had it delivered to my holding place, in Calais, Maine, which Gilbert and I picked up, a few weeks ago.

Yesterday morning, I was digging through my limited batik fabrics - no, I don't want any more.... Batiks and I have a Love/Hate relationship. *grin*

Anyhooooo, here's 2 fabrics that I came across!!!!

Soft, brownish sand with built-in clamshells and some water batik!!!

Frummie skyped me yesterday evening and I showed her these 2 fabrics. She said she had some PERFECT batik fabric, for the sky, which she promises to mail to me!


Well, this morning, I printed out - on paper - a set of clamshells.... just to play around with them.

I decided that I would print my Inklingo on the RIGHT side of the fabric and appliqué them.

Sooooo, what do you think, eh?

Imagine the clamshells, in paper, are skin toned (naked) butts?

A kind of nudist beach!

Can you just hear the seagulls, which I will be embroidering here and there??? And possibly add a lighthouse, in the background and maybe a sailboat or two.

Will keep you all posted on when I start this project. Right now, I'm just in the "Process" stage.... and remember? I had pledged to share the process.
