Its time for Amy's Bloggers Quilt Festival - I love looking through all the inspiration of everyone who submits a quilt! I wanted to get in on the fun!
A few months ago a client hired me to make a baby quilt. She wanted a sea theme - boats, mermaids, seashells etc. I had been wanting to make something from the Out to Sea line by Sarah Jane and this was the perfect excuse.
(iphone pic, sorry about the blurry) I had this quilt laying on my floor for a month trying to decide about the placement and how to fit all the pieces together.
I loved the bigger prints/panels. The boats, the mermaids and the map had to be a focal point of the quilt.
Mixed in some patchwork and we had ourselves a quilt. I was told just yesterday that it was given out and loved by the new owner.
I used the Waverly pattern for quilting. This is one of my favorites as I think it has a look of waves and sky and adds great texture. Especially with this minky backing!
