Sailboat quilt in Progress!


I started working on a new project this week and still working on it. The pattern is from a book by Sarah Sporrer called, One Summer at the Shore. I thought this would be a fun one to do for summer and I liked the scrappy look.

I used scraps for mine and went a little wild with the pattern choices. The tea stained background will be sewn onto the blue background, using the raw edge of the muslin. I am not sure how it looks together, what do you think? It is a dark blue with circles that have a star in them.

Once I get that on, then I will do some primitive quilting designs and use a red edge for the binding.
I also think I need to add a little stitchery for some detail on the lighthouse, will mull it over and we shall see how it turns out;)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Mother's Day! I am planning on an outing in Connecticut so hopefully the weather is nice and we can get out for the day.
