Cobblestones swap: Cait Gordon

Beaches by Cait Gordon
Beaches - Made from the watery blues and sandy colours swap, machine and hand quilted.

It has a wavy bottom – just like mine, LOL! Named after the movie with Bette Midler because I *love* the song, Wind Beneath my Wings. This quilt reminds me of my best girlfriend from when we were kids – we spent many summer days at Cottesloe Beach, Perth.

Orient Express by Cait Gordon

Orient Express Put together in a hurry for the Perth retreat and named accordingly! Made from swaps of cobblestones and different sized squares of oriental fabrics. Machine quilted by Vicki Mumme.

Close-up shows a second quilting design running from top to bottom, but it was hard to see, so I hand stitched over the top of the stitches in 2 strands of cream DMC. Cobblestone blocks also incorporated in the borders, and spares are on the back.
