A trip to the beach for her twenty-fifth wedding anniversary was Melinda Bula's impetus for this award-winning quilt, which won Best of Show at the 2008 Road to California exhibit. Melinda and her husband took a stroll on Monterey Bay, where she took lots of photos as the sun was setting and the fog began to roll in. The quilt top was constructed with fusible appliqué and then stitch painted with a thicker 30-weight thread and large stitches. Look for Melinda's two books, Cutting Garden Quilts and Candy Cane Lane, both available from Martingale & Company.
