    YEAH!!! Just in time for Mike's birthday tomorrow. My husband is an avid boater and prefers a bigger than lap quilt size.

    These are the nautical flags which represent the letters of the alphbet 'A to Z'.

    It has taken me almost 2 months. I used a pattern in the book "Quilts for Men". I modified that pattern to make it longer by adding Mike's initials in flags on the last row. I also added a 2 inch yellow border. On the back I used a creme colored world map. The yellow strip in the center is for signing. It just so happens we have rented a house for a couple of weeks to go scalloping and our front door will be revolving. Lot of family and friends will be dropping in on us so I want everyone to sign his quilt for his birthday.

    Pictures are blurry because they were taken with an IPOD. Husband has my nice camera.

    Amazon link for the book. I know I always want the name of your patterns for all the beautiful quiilts I see on here.

    What a neat quilt! And a great idea to have everyone sign it! I have wanted to make one of those, but have yet found a book with the flags in it. Haven't tried the internet yet - duh! Beautiful!

    Thanks for the link to the book! Just saw that part!

    That is a beautiful quilt. I have to make a quilt for dad and do not know what pattern to use. Just gathering ideas, still working on the sea quilt for my coworker.

    Love it!!! I really like the punch of yellow around the edge. What a fun idea to have everybody signing his quilt.

    Great concept (I have to keep this in mind for the boaters I know). I love that border - the B&W stripes do a great job of framing the whole quilt. And adding a touch of whimsy.
    I hope you get a ton of signatures.

    Nicely done. These blocks are also in "5,500 Quilt Block Designs" by Maggie Malone.
