First, Saturday we made a 'quick' trip down to the San Diego Zoo and the San Diego Safari Park. And by 'quick' I mean we probably spent as much time on the road than we did in the parks. Traffic heading down was bad, took us almost 3 1/2 hours rather than the normal 2-2 1/2. We stayed at the zoo for a couple hours, enough time to take enough pics to make this gif of a roly poly baby panda:
I printed out vintage pics of a starfish and seahorse on photo transfer paper. Using some stash fabric, I made a sandy wonky log cabin around the image. Who knew I had so much beachy fabric? Then I got my free motion quilting on. Around each image, I did some pebbles; in the sand, I did some plain straight-stitching; in the blue, I did some wave-like echoing. On the back, I did some sandy stripes, and made an envelope back with velcro closure.
