I love spring...and this weekend it feels like spring is almost here. Even though Ottawa is blanketed in snow, the sun is shining and the air smells different...
So for March/April, to celebrate spring and all things bright, I'm asking my quilting bee to help me finish the sailboat quilt I have been planning to make as a baby gift for my brother's baby James...he'll be one year old in June and I've since re-drafted my plan and am going to make it a double quilt rather than a crib quilt. It will have more staying power.
Here's what we've made so far...
So, two more of the same as last year, please and thanks!
Instructions (thanks Jennifer for finding them!!):
Pure white (no prints, my fave is Kona White) for the background
Blue prints (no batik or mottled, fresh solids are great, fun little prints to make the boat part) in every shade of blue from navy to aquamarine... last year, you guys were so inventive and found lovely nautical prints and fun japanese fabrics that make me smile.
Please use her modification - so the 2.5" x 4.5" print on the bottom of the sailboat is replaced with 4 of the 2.5" squares to keep with the scrappy look...as you'll see from last year's blocks, the visual effect is so lovely.
