Daysail Finish


I'm so happy to be back with a finish! I love this fabric and this quilt but had a heck of a time getting decent pictures. Now that I feel like I'm able to be back to sewing, a camera is back on my list of must haves.
The fabric is Daysail by Bonnie and Camille for Moda. The aqua in this line is so perfect! I purchased my fabric from Lori at Stitches N Giggles. The pattern is by Live.Love.Sew. I really like the way she writes her patterns. Very easy to follow. For the solid I used Moda Bella white 98.


The pattern uses a 4 x 5 layout but I chose to do 3 x 4, allowing me to only use 12 fat quarters and still have a decent size lap quilt.



I used a 1.5 yard cut of one of the prints for the back along with the white. This has kind of become my go to layout for backings. I absolutely love pieced backs but hate doing them. This allows one of the prints to be incorporated without spending a fortune. And it's fast and easy!


I quilted straight lines in a 2 inch grid over the entire quilt.


The binding is one of the navy prints from the same line as well.


It finished at 52 x 69



Now it's time to catch up on my BOM and some small things that have been waiting. Thanks for stopping by :)
