Stripes!

Nautical Stripe Quilt

Tbe second quilt I finished from 2 weekends ago was this simple nautical stripes quilt. i love wide rugby stripes and i chose navy and white with a little aqua and orange for accents. The quilt measures 34x39.

I quilted in a wavy organic line pattern with connecting threads essential beige cotton thread. the quilt has my preferred method bias-cut hand stitched binding.

I didn't want the blanket to be too plain, so for the back, i added a stripey star in navy chevron and aqua stripe on a beige cotton couture background. i used hobbs 80/20 batting, which is so thin and lightweight. i'm not normally a fan of poly anything but this batting makes a really drapey quilt.

I'm pleased to say that this quilt was chosen as a Staff Favorite at Storenvy. it's listed in the shop.
