This is the picture I drew to begin the quilt. T. had seem one with a whale so one square has a little whale on it.
Here are the six background fabrics I choose.
For the material for the sailboats I chose Blues fabrics with dots or stars and then found green and yellow fabrics to complement the blues. The mast fabric is the same as the corner squares and matches closely with the dark stripe in the boarder fabric. The quilt is also bound with the same blue fabric. After cutting out the different pieces it's time for the fun part, or maybe the headache part of the project, laying out the squares. Every boat will not be your favorite and some combinations you will absolutely love. Yet in the end you wouldn't want just a quilt of favorites it's all the combinations that make it unique and fun.After the layout is complete iron the pieces in place and then applique. I used a light blue thread on everything even the greens and yellows but not the on the mast. It is done with a darker blue thread. Squares are sewn together with yellow sashing and blue corners.
