Float My Boat–A Work in Progress

Sailboat Quilt

I had a little time to experiment yesterday and just started “playing” with the simple shapes from yesterday’s sailboat tutorial.  See the  Sailboat free motion quilting tutorial HERE.

While I did iron the fabric, I didn’t bother with a ruler or rotary cutter…I just worked free hand.  I used a glue stick to quickly adhere the shapes to the background.

I was in a hurry to sit down and do a little stitching…

I stitched the sailboat–just like the free motion quilted tutorial…

I stitched around the raw edges of each shape and background and then added more free motion quilting.

I think I will use this “etude” as the basis of a larger quilt…

And if I’m very ambitious, I just might bind this little quilt…

  1. I love this! The addition of the fabric has brought this free motion quilting to life! And a quick way to complete a quilt. Perfect for baby and children’s quilts, and probably much more, with a little imagination.

  2. Love it- very summer and refreshing. I have been using your quilt designs on a variety of projects- thank you for the design ideas!

  3. Very cute. I’ve just recently started doing some free motion quilting, so I’m loving all of your quilting lessons. In fact, I have a quilt kit waiting for me to find time to make from Fig Tree Designs with lovely sailboats, so the sailboat quilting will be a fun addition. I’ll let you know how it goes!
