Nautical Flags Quilt

This past weekend was a great one for many reasons: a fun-filled visit with Amelia’s grandmother & great-grandmother, a quilt guild meeting (my last one for a while), and celebrating the Dads in my life. We packed a lot of fun into a few short days, and now we’re in the home stretch before baby #2 arrives…

But aside from all the family fun, let’s talk about quilts!

Like I said, the June meeting with the Music City MQG was likely my last one for at least a little while (between having a baby in July and the next few meetings including traveling for a shop hop and retreat), and I had a personal deadline to finish 3 quilts…  surprisingly (hip hip hooray!), I actually accomplished my goal! I shared all 3 quilts during Show and Tell (I’ll get those all up on the blog soon), and then I was so, so excited when my friend Emily presented a lovely quilt for baby boy!

Emily designed and pieced this gorgeous quilt inspired by maritime flags. I love the color palette (and the fact that the guild gave Amelia a sailboat quilt in 2017… you know I love a nautical theme!) and I was just blown away by the work (& math!!) that goes into a quilt like this one. Of course I love it!!

Megan added her gorgeous custom quilting which really enhances each block, and added a special label on the back. I’m so lucky to have generous, creative friends!

After Show and Tell, we started on two quilts that will go to a foster care center in Nashville, and as always it was so much fun to chitchat while we worked. My sewing stuff is packed away, but I’m so happy I got to attend one last meeting before hibernating for a bit.

It was a good day for quilts!
