Pattern Description:

It's time for a sail with the cutest baby sailboat quilt ever. This simple quilt has a vintage look with the classic sail boat applique. This baby quilt is a wholecloth quilt, which means that you cut the front, back and batting all the same size as the finished quilt. The applique sailboat is sewn with the fabric edges raw, exposed. It is designed to fray to the stitches, giving a textured, unaffected look to the quilt. The applique and the quilting are done at the same time. There is no binding; the edges are finished by sewing all around and then clipping the edges to fray.

Every step in this quilt was planned to create the most beautiful quilt possible in the most efficient way possible.

This pattern includes complete easy to follow numbered step by step directions. There are full size printable patterns for the block appliques. The pattern is written with metric units in parenthesis. If you have any questions or concerns about the pattern please contact me.

  • Approximately 42x 36 inches (105cmx110cm)

  • Darning foot or free motion foot accessory for your sewing machine
