Sailing Away

The latest quilt I've been working at has been a boat themed quilt inspired by my honeymoon on the Isles of Scilly - I wish I could say that it was my design but I got this one from a book called Sew Fabulous Fabrics by Alice Butcher and Ginny Farquhar. They had designed the pattern for curtains but I think it works just as well on a child's lap quilt.


I'm on a mission to avaoid too much stipple/vermicelli and so far only two of my quilts have been quilted this way, the last one I quilted was loop-d-loop and now I'm going to have a go at creating waves - like these;

Hope everyone in the blogging community is well today. I can quite happily report that married life is going very well indeed!!
