I just love this quilt!!! I love the chain that is created around the stars, it just gives so much movement to the quilt ;) The fabrics I used are The Boat House by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics and I just love the fun nautical feel they give the quilt. It just reminds me of pennants dancing in the wind along a dock ;)
I decided to quilt this with one of my favorite all over fillers. I did about a medium scale and quilted a combination of swirls, echoed paisleys, and pebbles. I just love the extra movement it gives to the quilt.
And the textures is oh so yummy. Love it!!! And no surprise here, I used my favorite 402 So Fine Superior Thread that just blends away perfectly onto the white background ;)
And that is Starboard!!! I hope you love it as much as I do and I am just so excited that I am finally getting to share it with you all ;)
Let me tell you a little about the book ;) 75 Fun Fat-Quarter Quilts is an amazing collaboration book!!! It starts with 13 Quilts from different designers and then we were asked to take that original quilt and change it up, and then change it up again, and then change it up some more ;) Resulting in 75 amazing quilt designs!!! So fun ;)
Aren't they so much fun!!!! Each quilt starts with some favorite Fat Quarters and a background fabric. So the cutting is done in no time and you can get right to sewing ;) I can't wait to make up each of these designs. I totally want to drop everything now and make that cute Christmas Tree one!!! So cute!!!
And there is going to be lots more 75 Fun Fat Quarter Quilts fun!! Be sure to pop in to all of the stops along the blog hop to see the amazing original quilts and all the fun twists that were added to them ;)
