I've always been a fan of nautical things so when I received an email a few months ago asking if I would like to participate in Dani Mogstad's project tour for her new fabric line,
By The Sea for Riley Blake Designs, I said, "Definitely!"
The sailboats, anchors and whales mixed with stripes, arrows and text prints are a beautiful combination. The colors spoke to me too, with subdued blues, greens and a touch of red!
For my project I decided to do something I've never done before and that is to make a sailboat quilt!
There are many sailboat quilts around but I couldn't help but design one with some simple striped sails. These blocks are very easy and quick to put together. It's a great pattern for beginners!
It's called Smooth Sailing and it finishes at 55 1/2" x 70 1/2".
Cathy Barney in Alpine, UT quilted the wavy lines for me. She always does a great job! And I guess I really like the pattern she did because I've used it several times now.
I had so much fun working with By The Sea and appreciate the opportunity
to be a part of Dani's project tour.
I hope you like my pattern!
