A Happy, Tiny, Little Fleet

Linda is expecting the arrival of her third grandchild early in the New Year so she's busy, busy, busy. After welcoming two beautiful little girls, this one she knows will be a boy so it's ships ahoy.

These saucy little vessels are just so much fun  that it's impossible not to smile as you look at them; you can tell that she's enjoying playing with the fabric combinations. It's all hand sewn.

The green and red ricrac waves set the whole thing off. Who says waves need to be blue and white?

And check out the tiny little ribbon flags atop the masts. She sews a couple of strips into the seam and leaves the ends flying loose. How cute is that? The colours and prints in this block are my faves, the vine print in particular.

I love the large polka dot sashing between the blocks - it's just the icing on the cake. What a happy little quilt this will be....M

Those are darling boats and I love the fabric they are sitting on. Thanks for sharing. Such a lively stash M has.
