Out to Sea Zigzag Quilt

Hooray, I actually finished a quilt!  It has been a while. I actually made a couple quilts and pillows and completely forgot to take pictures of them before I sent them off to their new home.  :(
I fell in love with this line of fabric months ago when Sarah Jane first posted it on her blog, and I immediately knew I wanted to make a quilt for my baby.
I went with one of my favorite patterns, the zigzag, and I think it worked out perfectly.  

 I used the map panel on the back, along with some Mendocino mermaids, which I think work so well with this line.
but my favorite touch was the addition of my daughters name, Elsie Mae, I have had this letter fabric for years, with intentions of using it, but I ALWAYS forget.  I'm glad I didn't forget this time.  I love it!

Bound in one of the Out to Sea stripes.  I love stripes!

I had leftovers, and cut a couple kits for this quilt.  They are available in my shop.  The kit is for the quilt top only.

This is so sweet! I have been wanting to make a quilt for my newest grandson. This would be perfect! I might have to, um, copy you (with proper credit of course). Her name on the back is the perfect touch!

This is really beautiful! I love the tiny anchors on the pink fabric, the map on the back, and of course the name as well. And who doesn't love a good stripe? Good job!

Wow, you got that out fast! That fabric barely came out. How cute. I think the back is my favorite, especially the letters. Love it.

Nanette Merrill said...

Oh I love it. And I adore the back. The out to sea fabric is perfect.

Darci said...

I love this line too. I am still undecided on a pattern but I love your zig zag.

Gina said...

this quilt is perfect and i love the back as much as the front. I have wanted to make a quilt with your zigzag pattern for a couple of years. i think it needs to move up on my priority list. The pattern is perfect for this line.
