quilt ship in progress

I found this great old quilt top upstate a while ago.

Unfortunately a  lot of it is too damaged  to sew but I love the colors and prints and there is enough for a couple  boats and ships.

The pattern for this ship evolved out of my fabric sailboat pattern as I was  revising it a little before teaching the boat making class at Squam. It’s just about complete now and I’ll photograph it later this week.  There is a little gentleman sailor captain.

I ‘m pleased with the shape and I’ve already begun another  ship in a kind  of grayish  hibiscus color that’s been on my mind  lately.

  1. The little white owl is adorable, almost ready to set sail! Where did you find the quilt? The fabrics are lovely, especially the striped pieces.
