Far Pavilions Quilt or Beach Huts by the Sea?

It is finally finished!! 
 Trimmed to size and bound with a double fold blue and white check cotton binding - and it even hangs straight after all that quilting - taken me 5 years from inception to completion
Collecting my husband's and my shirts - plus a few from friends

Weeks of free-motion quilting in various coloured cotton threads - used over 2,000m of blue cotton..................... every beach hut is different and has a different 'flag' flying from its top

Detail of some of the beach huts

Detail of a side - rolling sea waves following an appliquéd shirt tail with rolling seas on the bottom gingham strip - white clouds are on the top gingham strip - all to add movement to the quilt 

Puffy clouds at the top - sea waves at the bottom and at the sides: all in different styles to reflect waves and deep sea currents
It makes such a difference to the quilt once it is bound!
Yet to label this quilt
Make a super wall-hanging or topper for a single bed

This came FIRST at Waldringfield Show!!
