I think this sailboat quilt will be so much fun for telling stories of the sea. Looking at this end, there is an armada of ships sailing by day…
And looking at this end of the quilt, there are 6 little ships sailing under a starry sky. We’ll be turning the quilt round and round telling a tale of ships sailing night and day!
Part of what I love about this quilt is that we sewed it together. My son’s blocks are a bit… irregular. 🙂
What can I say, it was his first time quilt piecing! The fabrics are True Blue by Anna Davis for Blend. I quilted it with wavy lines to give the feeling of water and wind. This was so much fun, I can’t wait to try another quilt that tells a narrative. Have you ever sewn one?
So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.

I am so in love with the beautiful look of simple patchwork quilts with lots of squares. This is the perfect way to use up fabric scraps like I did, or you can make a beautifully coordinated quilt with pre-cut 2 1/2’’ square fabric pieces that come in mini-charm packs.
I’m also in love with the process. If you feel like quilt making is your escape from the world and sitting down to sew for a few hours makes your troubles fade away… this is the quilt for you!
