Le Challenge #3 = Maritime

Le Challenge Here is my entry for Le Challenge Challenge 3 - Maritime:
17" x 17"  
Paper pieced center design is the Sunshine block from Compass Collection from Quilting on the Square
I added the 1/2 " squares in the  border to represent numerous water events
Machine quilted with YLI clear thread

I think it looks very like a festive boat race! 

I tried really hard to do a continuous quilting design because I didn't want to stop and start so much. (very hard to quilt clear on white background as is...if you know what I mean)

There is still time for you to link up your idea of Maritime.  Come join in the fun.


  1. It looks great! I love that little star in the middle. Thanks for joining in the fun!

  2. I immediately thought of boat flags before seeing the title. Nice job!

  3. I love your fabric choices, and your quilting is amazing :-)

  4. What a great compass!! Perfect fabrics to make you think of a Regatta. The quilting looks fabulous too, I love the pattern it makes on the back.

  5. Beautiful - design, colours and quilting! Really, really like the thin border. Makes it all pop. Perfect "maritime" inspired piece.

  6. Lovely colour choices and impressive quilting. (I hate stopping )and starting too!

  7. Great design and I love the nautical colours you have used.

  8. This is gorgeous and the quilting is fantstic! :)
