The quilt is known as after certainly one of our favourite seashores in New Hampshire – the seaside at New Citadel Widespread – a bit of island on the mouth of the place the Piscataqua River meets the ocean. There’s even a lighthouse at one finish of the seaside that welcomes and guides boats safely into Portsmouth Harbor.
Listed here are few photographs on location final summer season once we visited household. We hit the seaside proper at sundown on an ideal evening. There was undoubtedly some wind (you may see an motion shot on my Instagram web page) so any photographs of the quilt required my holders to face on the underside edges to maintain it from blowing away!
