Summer Sailboats

sold on etsy

gift to great nephew

Two quilts I no longer have but sailboats always speak to me of summer. The top quilt I used the whole fat quarter for the sailboat blocks the second I cut the sailboat to pattern size Buggy Barn for the ocean wave borders. Both are free motion quilted. Wishing for a cooling breeze. --Ann--

Hi: I'm a new follower and love your sail boats. That's a very happy quilt. I've not had much luck with snap peas here but hope to do better next year by planting earlier. The old quilts, Pattilou, aren't they precious. That feathered star is really nice. I have three old quilts from my grandmother who also did it all by hand. Please come and see me at Prairie Cottage Corner. You can see her quilts there. I never thought I would be a quilter after I watched my grandmother with her tiny stitches. However, after Mom died, I inherited her UFO's (mostly embroidery) and I finished some of them for her....and haven't stopped stitching since then. Thanks for letting me visit.
