By The Sea Project Tour + Smooth Sailing (A New Pattern)

Wednesday, March 8, 2017

I've always been a fan of nautical things so when I received an email a few months ago asking if I would like to participate in Dani Mogstad's project tour for her new fabric line, 
By The Sea for Riley Blake Designs, I said, "Definitely!"

The sailboats, anchors and whales mixed with stripes, arrows and text prints are a beautiful combination.  The colors spoke to me too, with subdued blues, greens and a touch of red!


For my project I decided to do something I've never done before and that is to make a sailboat quilt!
There are many sailboat quilts around but I couldn't help but design one with some simple striped sails.  These blocks are very easy and quick to put together.  It's a great pattern for beginners!


It's called Smooth Sailing and it finishes at 55 1/2" x 70 1/2".


Cathy Barney in Alpine, UT quilted the wavy lines for me.  She always does a great job!  And I guess I really like the pattern she did because I've used it several times now.


And my favorite...striped binding.  I love the stripes in this line!  They come in blue, green and red.


I had so much fun working with By The Sea and appreciate the opportunity 
to be a part of Dani's project tour.  

I hope you like my pattern!
