Piecing Completed on “Nautical”

I know, I know! I said the next time I post about this it will be completed but that’s not happening anytime soon because I won’t have access to my full sewing space for a while, I’m still on my annual leave. I am however posting a quick picture of my achievements so far and in this post basting your quilt I mentioned I won’t be Quilting this as I go like I have been doing with my other projects. That means the Quilt top is now completed and I might then stick to my promise of not posting about this again until it is completed but I seriously doubt that 😉 I foresee another post while basting this so fingers crossed for now.

And without further ado, here is a picture of the completed Quilt top…Lemme just reiterate that I loved every step of this experiment/Playing along. I thoroughly enjoyed figuring it out as I progressed, I see more of that in my future.

By the way, I managed two post in a day, I must be on a roll…No I’m just on holiday *wink* and today is the perfect day for a work in progress post…it’s #workinprogresswednesdays afterall.

I am yet to decide on a backing fabric and your suggestions are highly welcomed…Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your week.

Sola 🙂

    Excellent. I’m not an expert on quilting projects, but I visit what quilt shows I can. And I jpg ow what I like.

  2. Wow this is wonderful! I love the colors and overall look of the piece. I love how you titled it “Nautical”?

    • Thank you so much Tierney, never really named anything I’ve made and this was all thanks to you 🙂

  3. What a wonderful quilt top. the colours are well balanced. I say – use that bright orange that pops up on your top as backing fabric =)

  4. This is amazing! Do you have more of that blue fabric that you could use for backing? That fabric makes me feel like I’m floating on the water.

    • Thanks a lot Stephanie, Yes I do but not enough to complete the entire backing. A pieced backing might be in order. I’ll try getting more of the lighter one with the anchor if I can. I love that fabric too and to think I almost didn’t buy it cos they insisted I buy the entire 5 yards left on the bolt and I didn’t think I’ll need that much of it…Glad I did!

  5. I love the quilt. I’ve not seen anything like it before.

  6. It was fun watching this come together for you. Great job completing the top!

    • Thanks a lot Marla, I had fun watching it come together too, I wasn’t sure how this was going to turn out, It is far from my usual color palette.

  7. This is incredible! I wish I could describe my reaction — let’s just say I showed it to my husband for him to marvel at, too. (He wonders if you are a Nigerian princess. I said in my opinion, you are.) I’m sorry I’m so inarticulate here. The overall design, your color balance, value balance, execution, are all SO good. Top notch.

    • Thank you so much Melanie for the wonderful comment! Thanks for showing your husband and NO NO NO I am not a Nigerian Princess at least not in the real sense of it 🙂 Funny my colleagues back in the UK used to ask me the same question…haha.

You know I love to read your comments!
