Maxine Oliver started her beach quilt while a student in one of Karen Eckmeier's Accidental Landscapeô classes. Maxine implemented Karen's layered curve technique to illustrate sand, water, and sky. She then topstitched all the fabrics with metallic thread and printed a photograph of her grandson Matthew on a pretreated fabric sheet. She fused the photo onto her project and added the pail and shovel.
