One of those quilts that I felt so-so about. But it does feel good to finish it up, since it was sitting on the pile for a long time!
I really do love this pattern, or style, whatever. I've made it before, both here and here. I really think it's a nice way to use a charm pack that doesn't look so much like a charm pack quilt. I think it has a nice vintagey look to it.
I think the reason I'm feeling slightly blah about this one is that I ran out of the cream colored solid. (Robert Kaufman muslin) So, rather than order more and wait two more weeks, I just eeked it out with what I had. I think this design looks best with more white space between the boats, and also a much wider white border. That way the boats look like they're floating peacefully and not crammed in.
It was made with a Hometown by Sweetwater charm pack, muslin for the background, Moda Bella Stone for the backing with the leftover charms running along the side of the back to make it wide enough.
This binding fabric is one that I love, love LOVE. I had to go restock from Hawthorne Threads cause I was so scared of running out. It's kind of a hand drawn grayish black stripe on cream and it makes a stunning binding. There's a couple yards left here!
