Sailboat Quilt in Daysail Fabrics

This sailboat quilt was finished just over a week ago. Made with Daysail fabics by Bonnie and Camille for Moda with a white on white background. The Kona for the inner border and sashing is Kona Splash available here from Studio 39 Fabrics. The Sailboat quilt can be found here in our Etsy shop.

I had originally planned to write a free pattern for this quilt but maybe there are enough sailboat patterns? Leave a comment below and let me know if you want me to hurry up and finish the pattern for this. 🙂

I quilted clouds in the white background and waves in the sashing and inner border. The sails are quilted with back and forth lines and the border is quilted with meandering stipple quilting. The boats have waves quilted on them too. I switched out threads to match the fabrics. All threads are Aurifil 50 weight 100% cotton threads.

I used a pretty ombre rainbow wideback for the backing (I believe this one is from Windham fabrics.)
