Another nautical quilt!

A few months ago I posted this little quilt. It was a commission piece for my sister so I had to send it to Florida. I loved it so much that I decided to remake it in another colorway. My intention was to enter it in our Guild show in the fall.

As with before, the clamshells were cut on my Accuquilt Go and pieced together. The anchor is applique.

The fabrics are Kona solid and Michael Miller The Littles. I forget what the white fabric is. It's a tone on tone that I got at my LQS.

I quilted free motion swirls on this one with my domestic machine and was pretty happy with how they turned out. I will say - it was tough to find a mint green thread to match that fabric. It's an unusual color!

I used the stripe from The Littles for the binding because I LOVE a stripey binding!

My label is pieced in the back.

Shortly after I finished this, we had Volunteer Week at work. Each department decorates to show our appreciation. The theme this year was...wait for it.... anchors!  Needless to say, I was in charge of decorating. I hung this quilt and this quilt in our entry area. When people found out I sell my work, the baby quilt was immediately snatched up!  Guess I need to make another one! :)

There was a Quilt on Facebook with an anchor as the main design. Is there a pattern for that?
