Sailing Ships

Lost Ship blocks rotated 180° form bright orange and orange-and-pink vessels swimming in a cream sea. A green print inner border provides an unexpected pop of cool color. The neutral background offers a great space for beautiful quilting. Fabrics are from the Tangier Ikat collection by Dena Designs for FreeSpirit. Quilting design courtesy of Handi Quilter; machine-quilted by Marie Eldredge.
