Sailboat Quilt

I'm beginning a new project, Joann Sets Sail, for my friend Joann who enjoys sailing. My quilt design uses Ocean Waves quilt blocks, and the large triangles will be filled with the sailboat themed fabric above. I shopped my stash and found some reds and creams that will work. Then yesterday I bought additional fabric at Beverly's, as well as Cloth and Quilts in Turlock, to create the somewhat scrappy look I'm trying to achieve.

I'm getting a good headstart on this one, since Joann's birthday is in December. Finding this cute fabric has me motivated.


  1. Do you by chance remember the name of this sailboat print fabric?

  2. Originally I found the fabric at It is Sail Away - Anchors Aweigh - Buttercreme, from the 'Sail Away' collection by Debbie Taylor Kerman for Henry Glass. I was lucky and found the same fabric at a local fabric store, but it's still available at at this writing.
