This Clam Bake pattern (by the talented Emily Herrick) has been on my "to make" list from the very beginning of my quilting journey.
I have always loved the classic design of the clam shells.
Emily's method and shell size was exactly what I was looking for!
It was also perfect for highlighting the fabrics in Anna Maria Horner's Fibs and Fables fabric collection.
Of course I had to throw in some Heavy Metal gold fabric (By JACK!E) to give the quilt the bling I love so much!
For the quilting, I went with several different quilting motifs.
I find it challenging to fill spaces with the perfect quilting.
I seek inspiration from all over quilting-dom 🤓
I am so happy with how this quilt turned out.
When my mom saw this quilt she told me it was a "work of art" and needed to be hung up.
(Isn't she sweet? ...wait for it)
I told her that I had no wall space in my home.
She immediately began to search my home for a wall.
Suddenly she stopped and said, "I know the perfect spot!"
"Where?" I said, assuming she had discovered some previously undiscovered wall.
"In Grandmother's bedroom!" She replied.
I then reminded her, "Grandmother's bedroom is in YOUR house!"
My mother smiled and said, "Well, yes..." 😂😂😂
My sweet angel mother did spring for the perfect backing for me. 😍😍😘😘

Isn't quilting the best hobby EVER?!
