Welcome to Moda's Friendship Quilt Along!

Hello Friends!

Welcome to day #3 of the Moda Friendship
Quilt Along!

Today, 2 other designers and I get to share our Friendship block and pattern
with you.

My block was  created using my "Seascapes" fabric.
Ahhh...the Sea! Don't you love to dream about
it? Especially in the winter?

The block was quick and easy.
To download the pattern:

I put my block on a beach bag to carry in
Cape Cod this summer on our family vacation.
Can't wait!!!
I'll have my family sign the bag during our annual
outing and write the year in the center.
What a fun keepsake of our trip!
