By The Sea quilt – WIP


This is a quilt that I have been thinking of making for quite some time. Half square triangles can be challenging and boring sometimes but the outcome is always amazing, beautiful and versatile. This is my latest quilt top that a friend named it #bytheseaquilt. I bought this beautiful yellow cotton from a local fabric shop and I instantly thought of these colors, warm summer days, sand, sea and heat. Yes, I know it is already September, but we can always dream of summer.

The main block of the quilt is called Tree Everlasting and you can find a video tutorial on how to make it here on my channel.

PS. I have not been working for the past year much since our baby needs a caretaker 24/7 and I can’t seem to be able to manage my time in order to get stuff done. The only thing slowly progressing is my Rotating quilt which is mainly applique and is easy to make with the baby in the same room…! You can find me more often on Instagram (@zarkadia), since it is super-damn-easy to socialize there, instead of blogging.

Needle and Thread Thursday Sew Fresh Quilts
Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.
