It only took three years, but the older '88 finally finished the quilt she started long ago. She dubbed it "Happy Sailing."
So cute, yeah?
Blanket stitch for the appliques.
I had some Japanese-ish wave fabric for her to alternate between the appliqued squares.
Then my youngest aunt cleaned up her room and stashed the squares away. My cousin finally hunted the pieces down so she could finish.
Here's the quilt in all its glory.
It's sized for a baby blanket so roughly 5-feet long by 3-feet wide. I forgot to measure exactly. She used a polar fleece blanket for the backing and layered it with some batting in between.
Yay! Didn't she do a great job?
Doesn't that make you want to start quilting too? :)
