Sail Away

After starting this quilt at the beginning of the year, it is now on its way to Norway to my relatively recently arrived great nephew. 

I initially planned this to be a square quilt and found an ideal sea-like background fabric in the bargain baskets at Abakhan. Somewhere along the planning the process I added in an extra row which meant that when it came to cutting the background fabric, there was only just enough.

The quilt is backed with fleece and the binding is a rainbow dotty print (both from the bargain baskets at Abakhan). It is quilted with Aurifil 40wt - the boats are outlined with stitching in the ditch and I used preset wavy line stitches for the waves. 


The pattern is available for free from Quilt Mag, should you wish to make one.


  1. Oh happy noew great nephew! he will love that cosy quilt!
