Wendy owns one of my local quilt shop gems, Among Friends Quilt Shop. Just the fact that she is able to own a shop AND find time to piece a quilt is pretty amazing. I don’t own a retail store and I can’t seem to find the time to piece anymore!

This patriotic baby quilt is a great summer project and features that ginormous ric-rac that is so popular right now. I did an echo around the ric-rac and outlined her sailboats. Then I added a loopie meander background that reminds me of the movement of the ships.

In the opposite corners I added boat anchors that goes perfectly with the theme. Cute, eh?

There are two different pinwheels in this top so I quilted them two different ways. You can see it best from the back.

This quilt is really more like a reversible quilt as it has a dark brown backing and I used white thread. The backing is really beautiful.

I put waves in the sashings to add to the nautical feel of the whole quilt top. Some little boy is going to love Wendy’s quilt, don’t you think?
