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 🙂

  1. 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.

    1. Thank you so much Melanie for the wonderful! 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.

    1. 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!
