My daughter-in-law's mother shared this pattern with me after she made it for our grandson.

My grandnephew, Jack, lives at the beach and his father is an avid surfer making this the perfect quilt for him.
Paper piecing is my least favorite quilt technique but I hunkered down and went to work. Going through my stash, I found most of the prints, only buying the beach flip-flops for the border. I'll warn you that the piecing has 12 cuts, making it a bit tedious but the results are spectacular.
I used flannel for the back and machine quilted it myself, outlining the surfboards and edging the sashing.
