    Red face a new queen sized quilt top finished today

    I've been struggling with getting this together- ran out of certian fabric & had to find a replacement 2 or 3 times- i have 2 large boxes full of nautical/lighthouse/sailing related fabrics & none of the blues were right with what i started with---that's what i get for just jumping in with a fabric i wanted to use up- then finding i have nothing to go with it---it was a challenge but i finally managed to get it to the queen size i needed- and it doesn't look so bad on the bed- i still now have to figure out a backing & get it quilted & bound- but at least the hard part is doneName:  nautical theme_2.JPG

    Doesn't look so bad on the bed??? I'll say not! It looks beautiful. Congratulations on coming up with a very attractive layout for your nautical prints.

    That is very striking. Everyone will think you have executed it perfectly and think you planned it that way.

    thank you everyone- i love it when a (plan comes together)
    i don't know why i had so much trouble with this one- well i do know why- the teal blue fabrics not going with all the sky blues i have in my stash-but i managed- now i really need to get busy & productive- get a couple more put together...i also need to figure out backing for this one...i need a new serge protector before i can plug the long-arm back in- so ---gosh maybe i need to make a list....

    Love the lighthouse panel in the center, and water never has one color of blue, so I'd say it works fine!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Very nice, I would say it turned out perfect! I have a collection of nautical prints that some day will get made into something. Right now I get them out and pet them. ;~)

    boy, i know how that goes! i have been (fondling) my nautical fabrics for a long time- sometimes i feel guilty for not using them- finally decided i really need to start making with them---this is the first-- i am glad it came together - but i have to admit- it was really difficult to start cutting into those fabrics!


    oh- and Scraps....the colors are just really starting to change nicely- should be quite beautiful by the time you get up here!

    I love the use of the different blues. Each blue picks us something in different pieces. It's a beautiful quilt top.
    One step at a time, always forward.
