Beach Baby Bingo!

Beach Baby Bingo!  June Modern Mini.
I was inspired by the Jersey Shore.  I tried to represent the boardwalk, salt water taffy, sand, beach towels and umbrellas and the ocean.

Here is the backing.   Once again proving that every piece of fabric in my collection belongs somewhere at some point.  Monopoly is based on the streets of Atlantic City, NJ.  
"The board game Monopoly has its origin in the early 20th century. The earliest known version of Monopoly, known as The Landlord's Game, was designed by an American, Elizabeth Magie, and first patented in 1904 but existed as early as 1902 " (wikipedia)

I have only a little bit of this Elvis fabric left.  I parse it out slowly.
 I used a variegated pink thread on the boardwalk and tan on the sand.
This quilt brought to mind my little Skipper doll and playing with tupperware or Pyrex "pools" when I was a young girl.
 She even has a vintage Goodie barrett with a metal clasp.  This is also her original little bathing suit.
 Miss Nutmeg was very curious of what what going on.  It really reminded my of Mr. Starbuck who would do the same thing.
She's still pretty cute. 
Wow!  I found this 1 yard piece of my favorite toile' in Pink on the free table at guild.  I will use it to cover my ironing board when it needs it.
Here is my guilds Raffle Quilt for the show in 2020.  Tara and her team did and fabulous job.  If anyone is interested I am willing to offer tickets by mail for a chance to win.
I stumbled upon this page on Pinterest.  Enjoy a little nostalgia~

Hope you are enjoying Summer so far!  Have Fun
