Tea by the Sea

Tea By the Sea by Clemetene Cosby

The featured quilt of the week in the March 20, 2011 Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter is called Tea By the Sea. It was created by Clemetene Cosby.

I have found that quilts are best enjoyed when you know the story they are trying to tell you. Cleme says that when she ran across the picture of these stylish ladies enjoying the beach, they were drinking something a little stronger than tea and were probably a little tipsy. Cleme turned them into proper ladies sipping their tea as well-mannered ladies should — legs crossed properly with gloves laid across the lap just so.
 
There’s nothing like a good makeover!
