What advice would you give someone starting this project? This quilt block pattern is not the easiet one to do. You have to make very sure that your points come out nice on the sails. I cut my pieces with a rotory cutter but I am not sure I would do that again. I seen to be more accurate when I cut my pieces the old fashioned way.

Cute quilt. The hand quilting makes it special.

Thank you. I love to hand quilted. I never machine quilted any of my quilts. I think machine quilting is amazing. I like the traditional patterns so I learned to hand quilt.

I made one similar to this for my grand children and it sure comes in handy when they come over for a visit. I have two grand sons ages 16 mos and 9 mos. and they put it to good use. Worth every stitch.

Grand children are the most wonderful things in my life. My olderst is 13 and my youngest is 4 months. Thank you for your comments.

Did you also make the quilt you have your baby quilt lying on ? It is beautiful too from what I can see of it.

No I didn't make that quilt. It was a gift. It is hand quilted. I don't do any thing that hard.
