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.
