"The sea does not reward those who are

too anxious, too greedy or too impatient"

Anne Marrow Lindberg

Gift From the Sea

Shore Excursion is the title of a quilt designed for the Aullwood Show. It was created as a celebration of quiet walks at the waters edge and the joy of finding even very tiny treasures washed up from the sea.

The waves washing across the rocks were created with a layering of netting and organza fabrics with shells and sea glass embellishments.
