Nautical Quilt - take 2

Many of you will remember this nautical quilt that I made for my sister. She has it posted on Project Nursery right here. Through that site a lovely woman contacted me and asked me to make one for her coming baby girl. Unfortunately, that quilt is made with Neptune, which is of course hard to find. I have some, but not enough to duplicate it. Fortunately, Tula Pink designed Salt Water recently. It has the same feel so I started with that as my main focus. I'm really happy with the results!



I did a bunch of customization for her. The boat flags are a Polish and American flag for the parents and I hand embroidered the baby's name on it.


I used an off white for the background for more durability for a baby quilt and since Salt Water has a a bit of off white throughout it.







The quilting I did the same way as my sisters.





She wanted to hang the quilt initially so I added corner pockets so a dowel rod could be inserted. I'm hoping it works well, I've never used this method on such a big quilt.



The binding I pulled from Prince Charming. It went so well I couldn't resist.



She also asked me to make her two coordinating pillow covers. I made one sailboat like the ones on the quilt.




The other I made an anchor with some patchwork.




I hope she's as happy with everything as I am! I can't wait to see what she does with the rest of her nursery.

Super cute! I have been making a nautical baby quilt recently too. The colours of mine are a bit more traditional to fit with my friend's nursery theme, but I love the fresh aqua and red combo of your quilt.

I never would have looked at Salt Water and thought "nursery" but this is adorable!
