You’ve survived Segment 2 of the QAL by the Sea. We’ve gone snorkeling to view fish underwater, enjoyed the night sky at sea, rode some waves, and tried not to get lost. I wonder what segment three will bring.
This QAL is brought to you by Partners in Design: Where Friends and Fabric Meet.

Tu-Na Quilts: Announcing the Next Quilt-a-Long with Partners in Design —Introduction and a look at my fabric selection.
What I Learned Today:
- Quilt blocks do not sew themselves. My design wall doesn’t look much different than it did two weeks ago.
- Making meatballs is fun when there is company in the kitchen. I used my largest cookie scoop, rolled the meat into balls, and baked them in the oven.
- My grandson has a good imagination. Yesterday afternoon, we were sitting at the table when the following conversation occurred. “Eek. There’s a giant spider in there!” my grandson worriedly exclaimed as he pointed towards the living room. We rushed to look. It did indeed look like a giant spider. Funny thing-it disappeared when the sun went behind the clouds. It kept disappearing and reappearing all afternoon.
Question: Do you have ideas on how you will layout your sea quilt? I’ve got ideas but the question is will I have time to put it all into motion before we head south in a few weeks. I guess, time will tell.
