 I made this for a swap. She loved the 60's, tye-dye, peace etc....

I made one of the peace signs with shells that I put a tiny blue glass seed bead onto and then one with buttons, there is rickrack, and even yoyo's what do you think?

I am pretty happy with it but hope she loves it Smiley

It's absolutely amazing, Babalina! I love all the different types of beads and other knick-knacks you incorporated into this Smiley Did you tie-dye the fabrics yourself?

 The one that is the borders and the one circle in the peace sign I did a long time ago and forgot I still had some...I went to make a diff. one I marbled some fabric for and was warned about something when I did it so I changed it and went through old stash and BAM it screamed I NEED TO BE IN THE QUILT and the rest I had and got just for this one...

the shells I get from a local Autistic man here who is a beach comber and makes stuff with them. He sells his stuff when you can find him...I chased him down the beach for about a mile and a 1/2 to get to him and he agreed to meet and he would make a bunch and bring to me..He uses only found items and I love that...he makes necklaces with them and bracelets but I opted to use them here....He also plays music on the side of the road by the shrimp boats to send them out on good journey and safe return everyday and says prayers for all the fleet...he is a cool odd hippy bird so he had to be in this!!
He is such a loved old bird by my whole beach community..

He sends all boats out and will be there when they get back too. It is like he knows their schedule..The saddest thing one of our scallop boats went down and the crew was lost he laid and wept for days on her dock as if he lost his only friends but he is so part of the boats that he knows and loves all the crews...He is said in the area to be the only man to truly love the boats that said sail to feed us...He paces if they are late on the return and will wait on the dock until they do and when one does not or loosed a crew member  Cry he is Autistic and knows everyone who is on every boat and times etc...it is amazing to see...he does love our town.......

Such a wonderful story and this quilt will have such good vibrations, as my friend told me tonight, that my house does, so it will fit in well. I have to say I love all the back story. I can't wait to see it in the gallery, because this is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.

I told my bff tonight about where my quilt was going and she is go happy that I got such a great partner in this swap that appreciates what love goes into my crafts. This is the best, absolutely. M you rock my world. And thanks for the story. Make sure the shell man understands how much I love this.

I will get a pic of him and post when I see him. He is a wild cool bird and I have never seen someone so attached to a fleet the whole fleet..the guys will bring him special stuff to make things with..when a new ship is here he is always there and always says the fleet prayer and blessing the fleet...awesome cool guy and his house has OMG shells everywhere..I should get pics man oh man it is something..he has started putting them on the outside I think with glue? I dont know but they are everywhere...
