White-on-white seashell background and the Navy Mini Anchors border fabric is from Timeless Treasures Fabrics of SoHo. The yellow sashing fabric is Artisan Spirit Shimmer by Deborah Edwards of Northcott.
The embroidery designs are from Anita Goodesign’s Nautical collection. You can see a close up of the individual blocks here.
Some blocks stitched out beautifully…
Some proved to be a challenge… do you see the issue with the compass? (Don't worry, I found a work around)
There was some “un” sewing
Then I had to prove that those titanium needles WILL break!
My friend worked her quilting magic.
Small stippling around the embroidery designs with wavy swirls in the sashing
Stars and “USA” in the navy border
Would I do it again??????
For my Sailor…ABSOLUTELY!
