Story

This is another quilt begun in a class with Pamela Allen. It is an idealized view of a trip to the beach. There is a tiny bit of an homage to the song about “Little Boxes” and the colorful houses that were the inspiration. The imagery also speaks to the development that goes on near beaches.

This quilt is also built on layers so the beach cabanas and houses look like they are floating on top of the background.
