I'm happy to say that I accomplished my goal for September! I needed to finish the quilting and bind this quilt.
I had started the quilting with the little sail boats following the tutorial by Lori Kennedy over at The Inbox Jaunt. I needed to finish those and then add waves to the borders following another tutorial by Lori.
I bound this quilt with a blue and white fabric I bought last year while vacationing in the Pacific Northwest with this quilt in mind.
Here is my finished Sail Away! quilt. I made this quilt with different nautical prints and other red, white and blue prints in my stash following the pattern called Nautical News by Busy Hands Quilts. I replaced one of the blocks with a sail boat block.
I also added a paper pieced anchor block to the back.
It does feel great to use fabrics from my stash which I had collected over the years!
The finished size for this quilt is 59" x 79"
Even the label is nautical themed!
I also kept up with the quilt alongs that I am following. See my orange blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and The Milky Way QAL here.
The newest finished blocks for the Grandma's Kitchen Sew Along are
I'm linking up to One Monthly Goal September Link-up over at Elm Street Quilts.
