Blogger's Quilt Festival - Scrappy entry

It's Blogger's Quilt Festival time again, and this time it didn't slip past while I was otherwise preoccupied! Thank you Amy for organising and hosting again.  If you are new to my blog, coming over from the Festival post,  welcome!  I hope you stay and visit a while.

Without further ado, here is my entry in the Scrap Quilt category.  If you've been reading my blog, you've seen it before and I hope you don't mind a repeat viewing.  It's one of my favourites from the past year.

Lucky Bugger quilt, 50"x 60"

Lucky Bugger (so called because that was what the doctor called dad) measures 50" x 66" and came mostly from my scrap bins.  I had to raid the quilt shop for the dark blue background/border fabric.  The design is mine, based on traditional blocks. 
 

It's basically a traditional Ocean Waves quilt, with a little careful color placement tossed in to get the stars. 


The sailboat was cut out of a piece that I pieced from scrap strips.


This quilt was entirely quilted with my walking foot.  Have I mentioned I love my walking foot?

I'm off to view all the other eye candy in the Blogger's Quilt Festival!

  4. I remember this one - I like it, too. I don't recall that it was all quilted with a walking foot - that border is great!
