Finished Pool Wall

Here's the final wall . . now on to the landscaping....

Our Pool's Quilt Wall

If you live in Bakersfield, CA life is easier in the summer if you have a pool. Our temps frequently reach over 100 degrees for several days in a row, so staying cool can be a challege. Oliver and I had a pool in our old house, but when we built out new house the pool decision was one decision too many. Then after a couple of years we just decided we could live without the pool. Well, toward the end of this past very hot summer we changed our minds. it was time for a pool, but we didn't want it to look like just a hole in the ground. Plus, I wanted to do something a little different, something colorful, and something a little quilty. A tile wall was in order. Hope you enjoy the pics of our wall construction. The tile guys were fabulous and had some fun too.
