Making a Baby Boy Quilt
Sometimes I get lucky, and a cute sewing project or pattern crosses my path, at the same time that I need to make a gift for somebody. I love when that happens!!
Recently, I set out to make something special for the first grandchild of my dear friend, Mary. She is now the proud grandmother of a cute little baby boy!
What adorable baby project "sailed into my horizon" at just the right time?
It is The Summercrafter's new baby quilt pattern... High Seas.

And here is the High Seas baby quilt that I made:

Dimensions: 37 inches x 37 inches
Fabrics used: Thar She Blows by Michael Miller ~ for the backing (whales)
Point of Sail by Michael Miller ~ for the border
Out to Sea by Sarah Jane Michael Miller ~ the red striped binding
Ombre Fabric in blue from my stash
I really enjoyed sewing these blocks! Each block that I finished became my new "favorite" one.
|The anchor block - I used some blue Ombre fabric for the ocean water|
|The pirate ship block|

|The whale block|
|I quilted some simple 'wave lines' in the border|
|I just love the striped binding ( sewn by machine on both sides) and all of these spouting whales!|
|The back side|
After looking at all of the whales, I remembered seeing a cute softy pattern for a whale...

You know I just HAD to make a little ole' whale to go along with this pirate quilt!

This quilt was so much fun to make, and easily started and finished in my weekend.
Go on over to Elaine's blog, Summercrafter , to see all of her patterns and beautiful work!
I can't wait to give them to the little guy!
