There’s a very special baby going to be born very soon, and I’m terribly excited. When I discovered that the nursery was going to have a nautical feel I was even more excited. I’d had this quilt in mind for years and this fabric in my stash for just as long. This was the perfect opportunity to bring it all together and surprise the mom-to-be!
The receiving blankets are a simple square of quilting cotton backed with a flannel. I adore this sailboat print. It’s an old one from Moda - a line called “Hamptons”.
The red blanket has a navy flannel backing and the blue one has a flannel navy ticking stripe. I love me some ticking stripes.
The quilt has a smaller scale patchwork sailboat that I adapted from the book Last Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson. (I love that book.)
The reverse side has some sweet flag bunting:
I love doing baby quilts - they’re such a manageable size. Hopefully this one is well-loved!
