Sailing Away Quilt Completed

I finally finished stitching the bias for this little quilt last night so that I could post you the pictures before the weekend. This has turned into one of my favourite quilts so far. I do love the colour combo of blue, red and white together, it's such a simple but effective design.

I showed a picture of how I was going to quilt it a couple of posts ago, but on reflection I thought the pattern was too fussy and I wanted to portray calmer waters so I have done a bit of a simple wave design with some curls.





Hope you all have a good weekend.
