Nautical love

This is one of a pair of quilts Pam (a quilting customer) made recently. I think they're both identical, I haven't examined the other one closely yet, but they definitely share similar fabrics.

I have to say, I really love nautical prints! I've never made a quilt using them before, but I think there will be one in my future, I love the crispness of red white and blue. There's just something about it.

I got busy quilting on this one last night while watching the Wimbledon men's final. Around 12.30am I had to stumble off to bed. While I don't have to get up to get the kids to school right now, the tiny people still don't sleep in too long - therefore late nights aren't too wise :-)

Tomorrow it's my plan to get stitching on one of my new projects ... will it be applique ... or will it be piecing? I promise you'll be the first to know! Have a great day x o x

I love blue and white too.

I tried to stay up for the final, but Alex wanted to watch the last Dr Who which was more appealing and definitely more gripping! I gather we both missed a good match.

I love the way you show customer quilts too. It's always interesting to see what everyone gets up to!

I love the red white and blues quilts too, you just can't go wrong with those colours.
Thanks for sharing your customer quilts.

I love the red, white and blue quitls. Those are great!

It's a shame you missed the end of the final - it was truly spectacular. One of the best I've ever seen.

I made a nautical quilt once, for my step-dad - or rather, it included some nautical fabrics in with other masculine stuff. I ended up liking it a lot more than I thought I would, as I'm not a huge nautical fan myself, but it was probably all the browns and tans I added...

I just noticed on your banner you have a countdown for a USA famiy holiday. Where are you going to visit in the USA?
