I was contacted by a client who liked my nautical stripes quilt but wanted a larger size. i used white and aqua mm cotton couture and a free spirit solid in navy for the top. the dimensions are approximately 36x48.
The customer picked out the fabric for the backing and binding. It's a line called "Ahoy Matey" by Michael Miller. I hadn't really noticed it before but it has several cute prints perfect for a nautical-themed nursery. i thought that the large panel would be perfect for the backing but it wasn't quite long enough, so i added a strip of navy to the top and a teal kona scrap that was in my stash. it happened to be just the right size and although not a perfect match, it was pretty darn close to the color of the water.
I did wavy line quilting with my walking foot and white 50-wt aurifil. the binding is cut on the bias and handstitched to the back. i love simple minimalist quilts. this one came together very smoothly and i really hope my client likes it!
