Out to Sea Quilt

This quilt is an oversized baby quilt meant to transition from baby to toddlerhood in both size and motif.   It is centered around the pirate girls from the "Out to Sea" fabric collection, and is a fun quilt both front and back.

This shows a closeup of the pieced back.  The map is also a panel from the "Out to Sea" fabric collection.

This shot of the back really shows off the nautical quilting design.  I used light grey thread on this quilt to blend in.

Here is a closeup of what the design looks like on the front.

Now, some action shots of the quilting in progress.  My Millennium is center stage in this one.

I love how you can see the design on the light back as I rolled the completed portion up.
