Sunshine and Sorrento

(Or, “I’ve always wanted to make a basket quilt”!!)

Tuesday was a beach day. A Sorrento day actually. Friends had been invited down to spend some time with Linda, and of course, GJ and I jumped at the chance!

I can’t begin to tell you how quickly Linda whipped through the finishing of several quilts! Before I could get the camera out, one was off the design wall and the next one on!! I did manage to snap a couple baskets

    The beach looks lovely!! So many pretties in your post today. Is the yellow triangle quilt a vintage/antique one? I love that pattern :0)
