This gorgeous wall hanging in the June/July issue of The Quilter, made from Ro Gregg's Marblehead Venetian Glass collection, is so aptly named "Sea Glass." Looking at this quilt, it's easy to imagine you're enjoying a relaxing day at the beach.

The aquas, the greens, the blues of actual sea glass.

Sue Harvey and Sandy Boobar of Pine Tree Country Quilts used the focal globe fabric (below) in an unexpected way--as setting triangles around the five main blocks. It really makes the blocks pop, doesn't it?
Then, adding to the unexpected, the main border features this beachy print, framed in a soft cream.
