Notice a trend recently?? Boy quilts have been the biggest request and more coming. Lots of blue, green, brown and orange laying around the sewing room.
Nautical has been a big trend in fabric this year and from what I hear, it’s not going away. Which is great! The colors work well for boy or girl and gives you options. Lucky for me this quilt was going into a nautical nursery.
There are lots of great blue prints out right now. For this quilt I wanted something that accented the nautical fabrics I had picked out. Why not do half square triangles all going the same direction to mimic sails?
Off to cut lots of 5″ squares in white. You will see more these coming up for a very cute project. Then cut even more 5″ squares for the varying blues I had picked up. Piecing and pressing was easy, layout took forever but I designed to go with a repeating pattern.
For the back I wanted to keep it simple and go with light gray. Of course I can’t make a quilt without some gray in it.
Turns out it matches the nursery perfectly.
