Nautical Bunting Quilt

I saw this quilt and knew I had to make one!  I just so happened to be taking part in a baby gift swap and my swap partner, Nikki was doing a nautical theme for her little guy.  So this was perfect!


I used a lot of fabrics from my stash and picked up a few quarters from the fabric store as well.  Because I used a solid navy back, I wanted to punch up the binding, so I made my own from a red and white polka dot calico using this tutorial.


And then I added an anchor applique because you can't have a nautical theme without an anchor!

Your quilt turned out beautiful. Timeless and perfect. The anchor is such a nice touch.

So cute. I'm planning a girl version of a similar quilt for my daughter.

Hi, I saw the picture of this quilt on someone's sidebar, and just had to come look at it. I LOVE IT! It would be a perfect patriotic quilt too. Great job!
