My first April finish

I have been a bit naughty with finishing this one, as the lovely Dawn who co hosts Sew its finished quilted it for me and gave it back to me way back at the beginning of March but I was so slow in getting the binding done. 

All of the little sailboats that make up the quilt were received in the 6 inch block exchange, and I found the cute sail boat fabric to alternate with them.  One lady could not paper piece, so she made me the pretty nautical stars that look almost like a compass and fit in quite well.


The quilting that Dawn did for me is ocean waves, if you look closely you can see them.

I think the anchor binding finishes it off well.  I started this quilt in May 2011 so it certainly counts as a completed UFO.

 I will be giving this to my 3rd eldest grand son Jack as his Big boy bed quilt.  
It will fit nicely onto a single bed.
