My Father asked me to make him a Lighthouse quilt. It came about because he's seen a quilt of lighthouse blocks (I guess a BOM type) and really liked it, but couldn't get the kit. My mind started playing with some ideas, and I bought a variety of fabrics that I thought would work, but then his plan evolved - I was handed a book: Pacific and Northwest Lighthouses . . .
. . . And told his favourite lighthouse was Cape Flattery in Washington. The book had a photo with far too many angles
And another that shows it's actually a distance from the sea, both vertically and horizontally
So I needed more inspiration - so my next visit was, where else but Pinterest!
OK, so the area looks beautiful, but nothing much to inspire me, until I see this piece of art
So far, this is what my version looks like
And an update on Lisa - she's renting a room in a a shared house in Melbourne, and spending her days looking for work . . . and crocheting granny squares
(And she sent me this photo - her room mate Ryan trying to work out the best arrangement of the squares!)
