Design Ideas from Another Sailboat Quilt
I promise. This will be the last one … unless I come across something else that I find interesting enough that I can’t resist sharing 🙂
This Baby Sailboat quilt came from a Leisure Arts Publication, Quick Method – Classic Blue Quilts. It’s quite old, but I found some copies online on eBay … and I wouldn’t be surprised to still see it on shelves at Jo-Ann.
I think there’s a couple of interesting design elements in this quilt.
- The strip of background fabric at the bottom of the sailboat blocks gives them some sea to float upon.
- The quilting design. I wasn’t sure if you could see it in the photo of the quilt–it’s really what caught my eye–so I included the diagram from the pattern.
Both these ideas could be used with our blocks and a similar tall ships quilt could be made from them.
