This compilation of designs captures that distinct place and season, the sunny summer beaches and shores as seen through the varied styles of dozens of talented quilters. These quilts use a wide variety of different techniques, explained and illustrated in great detail, and there are quilts at all levels, for beginners and veterans alike. My favorite of these is Flavin Glover�s �A Day at the Beach,� a traditional geometric rendering of the beach with its colorful umbrellas done in modified log cabin blocks. Bringing a smile is Ami Simms� �Bikini Quilt,� dubbed by her mother �Boobs and Bellybuttons,� which is made in a kind of tessellated arrangement of hourglass blocks. And Elsie Vredenburg renders the lighthouses of Fundy in a wonderful profusion of snail�s trail blocks. This book will inspire you to raid your stash for beachy blues and browns and go dig out your flip-flops.
