My blue and embroidery quilt / quilt azul con bordados

Esta es mi entrada para el bloggers' quilt festival organizado por Amyscreative side.
This is my entry for the blogger's quilt festival hosted by Amy's creative side
This blue quilt's pattern was designed by the talented girls at Authen-tic; they designed it as part of their mistery quilts

It includes both embroidery and classical patchwork blocks
As the quilt was blue I thought of taking the pictures by the sea, on the beach, but I thought twice and I finally took it to Ortiguera, Asturia's smallest fishing harbour.

The colour of the sea at this time of year is amazing

This was my summer project, it's 36 inches square. It was hand embroidered but machine sewn and quilted



I really love this spot. This autumn is being very mild and it's fantastic to sit by the sea. The rumour of the waves and their moving is hipnotizing
But while I was shooting I couldn't avoid turning round to depict the  fabulous green colours of the village.

  19. I looked at this quilt the other day on my phone--it's what I'm thinking of as "the other beach quilt" :) I love that first shot. It is an amazing photo of a gorgeous quilt; the background is blurred just so, and I love how the wind is blowing the quilt. Perfect.
