I just love this quilt's story. It starts with this quilt that my sister, Theresa, commissioned for a friend. I had some fabric remaining, but not a clue of what to do with it. So I passed it off to Tracy who came across this pattern (for free!) and decided it would be a perfect fit. I agree!
So Tracy pieced the top, then we sent it off to Logan of Chocolate Dipped Quilts who had offered her quilting services to help with this fundraiser. What a sweet lady!
She did bubbles inside the white star, then waves everywhere else. I think it is just perfect!
The Maritime Modern fabric is so much fun - ships on the open sea, barnicles, Moby the whale, nautical ropes and a woodgrain. Plus, Tracy threw in some blenders like gray solids, Pearl Bracelets, and polka dots.
Here's another close-up:
Now, I thought I had a backing for this, but it turns out I was wrong. So I asked Anne if she had anything that she could part with that might work, and before I could blink she tossed this to me:
It's so perfect!!! The colors match the front perfectly, and I just love that broken chevron pattern. It's kinda wavy itself, don't you think?
And lastly, Tracy prepped the binding for me, and I hand-stitched it. I just love that part!
So there were four of us, from North Carolina to Utah, involved in making this quilt. How's that for a modern quilting bee?
