At any rate, tea has absolutely nothing to do with the new Sunbonnet Sleuth mystery quilt. Instead, it is more about people who live in Atlanta GA do in August. Off to the beach, then back to school. Wonder how I am going to fit beach and school into one quilt? You gotta start sewing to find out!
Here are your fabric requirements. The finished quilt measures 49-1/2" wide x 64" long. The blocks are 10" x 10". The four fabrics on the top row are used in the blocks along with the pale aqua on the second row. The other 3 aqua fabrics are for sashings, borders and binding.
As for beach vacations before heading off to school, here is my youngest granddaughter Cymia (on the right), with her cousin Madeline (on the left) enjoying a bumper boat ride at Rehoboth Beach, VA while on their end of summer vacation with the family. The girls are both 5 yrs old and are best of friends.
