I was asked to make this quilt for another upcoming baby shower. The nursery colors will be navy and bright green and the mom likes modern designs. I pulled a few prints, ordered some solids and came up with this:
I'm pretty tickled with these little boats.
They are a modification of a sailboat block tutorial found at Sunset Family Living.
For the back I used some leftover pieces from the front and paired it with this awesome sailing ship fabric from my stash:
Not very baby-ish but I think it goes well with the theme. This is actually a piece of fabric I purchased in Turkey. You can read about my fabric shopping trip and even see this piece in this post.
I've got this one all sandwiched up and ready to go. I'm thinking of quilting the wavy lines pattern I used on this Little Guppy baby quilt because it turned out looking like water. No ideas yet on how I will quilt the rest of it. I have until July 11th but I'm hoping to start on it soon so I won't feel rushed.
