This is it after I finished it. The thing I love about these designs is that they are completed in 3 hoopings, but the panels are then sewn together without a satin stitch around each one. I don't like that "tiled" look so many ITH quilts have.
Here it is with the panels stitched together before binding. Why did I think this was so perfect for my parents?
They love to eat oysters.
They love fish and there is a little fish market right by their house.
They have lots of pretty flowers in their yard.
The dock and ocean are just like the one by their house.
I like the yellow dish of lemons.
I look forward to seeing it on the wall when I visit. I think it will look great!!
There are many other amazing buildings by this designer. You can also use just the top and bottom level for a quicker project. I would definitely try another when I have a chunk of free time!!
