The Cape House Quilt, originally uploaded by SewLaTea.

As usual, I slack on the blog posts. I finished this quilt in December and gave it as a gift to my mother and father in law on Christmas. I called it “The Cape House Quilt” as our favorite family times at the Cape inspired it. It started as a “thank you” for year after year, inviting us throughout the summer to visit their Cape house. We spend as much time as we can there. For our kids, weekends (or weeks) spent at the Cape are a kid’s fantasy. Life on the beach…afternoon bike rides, digging for clams, catching crabs at “crab creek”, cookouts, 4th of July fireworks, COUSINS!, hanging out on the hammock, playing whiffle ball in the yard overlooking the ocean, walks to the harbor to get ice cream….its a dream. As an adult, I relax as soon as I get there. Its time to unwind, sit by the ocean, talk with family….RELAX (did I mention that?!).
I added lots of pictures of the 15 grandchildren on the back (not usually my style, but I knew my in-laws would really appreciate it).
and voila. I finally got some pics of the quilt while we were down there on Memorial Day weekend.
I’m wishing I was there right now…..
