Sail away


This blanket was done using a free quilt pattern  Sail Away published on the is stated on the  Riley Blake fabrics website. I changed a little bit as usual by  enlarging the blocks to use all the fabrics I had.
 
 
I bought five  "fat quarters" from Fly Aweigh collection by Riley Blake: 2 FQ for  ships,1  FQ for a sea and 2 FQ for a border. Plus a solid fabric for the background. Blanket’s dimentions  are: 42 per 50 inches. 
 




Every block with the ship consists of several parts : sails - squares composed of two triangles (made from  two large squares), the  hull - a rectangle with corners and three rectangles for a  background and the sea.



 


 The batting is 100% cotton from the  of Hobbs Heirloom Company (thinner than the one used previously from Quilters Dream Batting , but also soft). This time I machine quilted it.
