UFO #1: I bought these blue Tonga Batiks at the Portsmouth Fabric Company in Portsmouth, NH in 2006. I usually don't gravitate to the color blue, but these blues were just luscious. Later, a blue-and-white summer quilt pattern in a magazine caught my eye. When the piecing was finished I bought two different backing fabrics, but neither were quite right. The perfect backing finally jumped out at me while at Hawaiian Fabric Mart in Honolulu this past August. Quilted by B&B Quilting in Orland, CA using a loop-D-loop pattern with fish and starfish motifs.
