Sailboats – a Setting Idea
I was flipping through a book looking for something else, when I saw this quilt … and had to share.
These blocks are wider than ours, but similar enough that I think you can easily see how effective this quilt design is … with plain sashing and borders. If you had a set of our lotto blocks, you could choose whether to go white or blue for that sashing and borders. I think the reverse blocks (whichever way) would give this classic a modern graphic look.
The photo above is page 282 from this book, The Encyclopedia of Classic Quilt Patterns. The link will take you to Amazon. I’ve owned this for a while, but noticed this week that it’s still on the shelves at the little JoAnn near me.
I didn’t find what I was looking for in it today, but it is a nice book full of quilts made from traditional patterns.
