Friday Finish: Alice's Swedish Ex (Part 2) and a Little Real Love

Alice's Swedish Ex likes the water. First she had a photo shoot at Huntington Lake, and this past weekend she went to the coast. Her "siblings" have already been there, so it was only fitting.

It was a little too sunny. So we came back later.
 My Swedish Ex was the first to be photographed here.
Next was My Bohemian Ex.
And finally, Alice's Swedish Ex.
Like any quilt mother, I can't choose a favorite.

And then sometimes it's really more about catching that perfect breaking wave in the background. Which always breaks immediately after you have given up...
 Look how clear the water is!
 You remember this sweet little note?
It had to be preserved, so I enlarged it, embroidered it and turned it into this pillow. I think Gabe's clever design needs to be copyrighted.

I'm linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts, Confessions of a Fabric Addict and TGIFF.TGIFF Happy weekend, everyone.

  5. Another beauty from this fun design. She posed beautifully, not even flinching when that gull came near. Glad Gabe's work is preserved for lots of happy memories in the future.

  6. Each version of this quilt is so, so nice. Bohemian may be my favorite since I'm a print girl at heart. I can't remember if you wrote a pattern for it or not because I'd love to play around with it sometime later this year once I have a few other things off my quilty plate.
