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!
I can understand why this is a favorite of yours. It is gorgeous! I feel the warmth of the sun and the breezes blowing the sails. Just so peaceful.ReplyDelete

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!ReplyDelete
