    This is a quilt for a couple getting married in November. We know them from the boating community near here, so I chose a nautically themed pantograph and a nautically themed label.
    Pattern adapted from a free pattern "Five Fat Quarter Fun- Cabin Fever". I adjusted the size by including more blocks and made pinwheels for cornerstones from the cut-off of snowballing the corners of the blocks.
    I used the leftover batiks and some background to make a scrappy type binding, I'm not sure if that shows up well in the photos. They were so excited to take it home I didn't get any pictures and had to ask her to take some photos and send them to me.
    They have a dog, who has already deposited dog hair on the label!
    Backing is a wide flannel, front is batiks (coloured) and a blender for background that is brownish/black

    Thank you everyone for the kind comments, the quilt was a pleasure to make, one of those ones that just came together.
