Goose Rocks Beach

The brown, blue and cream/white Slashed Squares flimsy is complete, and it is now called Goose Rocks Beach. 

Thanks to the readers  who suggested names. Earth and Sky were clearly elements, but music and food just didn't do it for me. Ann got me in the right direction when she suggested Maine. So I opened Google Maps, and found Ogunquit Maine (an easy drive from my house), and scrolled north along the coast, looking for any name that struck me. Goose Rocks Beach is an actual place in Maine, just north of Kennebunkport.

If you want to make a Slashed Squares quilt, you can get my tutorial here, on my Etsy shop. It's an instant download so you can get started right away. You can see more pictures of these quilts here.

I have traveled to Maine a few times for vacation- to Kennebunkport and Ogunquit. I love Goose Rocks Beach. I have only been there on windy and somewhat cloudy days, but the walk along the beach is breathtaking. My favorite walk in on The Marginal Way in Ogunquit and I have the photos to prove it. Because we have to battle the traffic around Boston coming from Buffalo, NY, we don't go as often as we would like. The quilt name is fitting.

Beautiful flimsy and great name. (p.s. If someone had told me years ago that I'd like quilts with blues and browns together, I would have made a rookie mistake and said "ugh" -- now that I've made at least 3 of my own with those colors, I know better!)
