More BOM inspired quilts

Lynn over at Klein Meisje Quilts finished her Sail Boats quilt which was started after she saw my post on the 2015 June BOM.  It's a fabulous quilt check it out at this link:

I have finish the top to my Sail Boats quilt but it's not quilted yet.  It is such a Cheerful quilt!
I call this block a Scrap Eater!  You can take the ugliest fabric and put a bright solid fab boat in front of it and you hardly notice the ugly fabric!  I used a lot of ugy fabric. It's a good block for random scraps too because it does not take a lot of fab to make the background.
 I really like the half drop set of the blocks too. That was the set in the original quilt that inspired me to use this block for the BOM.You can find the link to my original post in the BOM tab at the top of this page.
Have a great week!
cheers, Claire W.


  1. You made a great quilt, Claire! And, think of all the boat quilts out there now because of your blog! I love mine.

    1. Thanks Lynn, and back at you! Your enthusiasm and intro. to your friends certainly helped move things along!! cheers! CW

  2. I spy, with my little eye, a boat with wonky sails! Love this quilt and I agree about the offset blocks.

  3. I like this setting for your blocks too - and it's always good to find a block that makes good use of the less lovely fabrics.
