Susan's Sailboats Quilt

My friend Susan worked on this adorable sailboat quilt for quite a while. I'd hear about it when she brought me other tops to quilt for her. I was looking forward to seeing it when it finally came my way for it's finishing touch.
I was excited when she called to book it on my schedule.  This is the "before" quilting photo.
In process.
She made this quilt for the daughter and son-in-law who own a sailboat.  Isn't it fabulous!
The Waterworld panto was her design choice. It adds the perfect feel for the pieced blocks. The batting is Quilter's Dream 80/20 which I have available to purchase for my customers.   Thread was Glide Tar Heel on the front and Sky in the bobbin.
The backing she brought was a solid medium blue that shows off the stitching nicely. 
I'm sure that the daughter and son-in-law that received this quilt were thrilled and will remind them of warmer days and beautiful breezes on the water, especially while hunkering down during our cold, snowy winters.
There's no doubt that Susan is working on yet another fun quilt top that will come my way for stitching at some point in the future.  I can't wait to see what it will be.

We live near the water so I am always happy to see maritime quilts. I love the sailboats, the red flags look as though they are waving in the breeze. The Waterworld quilting really works beautifully. If Susan is willing to share the name of the pattern, I would love to know it.
