The Nautical Quilt

Nautical Front

Here is a Nautical Themed quilt for a special little addition to our extended family. The quilt is made using the “Sweet Dreams Sailboat” pattern from the book Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts. The pattern was perfect for this occasion and went together beautifully. I used all Kona Solids on the front.

Nautical Themed Quilt Back for a Friend

Nautical Themed Quilt Back for a Friend

For the back I found this cute sailing-themed print that just worked perfectly.

I was really stumped for the longest time as to how to quilt this one. Then I decided to follow the diagonal of the sails, but have them meet at a point in the center. Might have to follow this quilting again, as it was quick and gave some nice movement to the quilt.

Cheers,

Liz
