Seafarer Pattern Release!

Happy to announce the release of the Seafarer quilt pattern!

When I made this quilt, I didn't think about writing a pattern, as this was a special quilt for my son as he embarked on his 2 year Peace Corps assignment. With so many requests for a pattern, I'm happy to announce the Seafarer pattern release today!

Since I was working from in-progress photos, I decided to make a baby quilt size to test the pattern. Isn't this just too cute???

The baby size version, which uses the same block size as the lap and twin/double size, measures a nice 39" x 39". And it's so soft - cotton batting, bits of flannel on the back,

and a nicely spaced wave design for the quilting.

Looks and feels just like the bigger version!

Now a bit more about the pattern, available at Etsy

three sizes available - 
      baby (39" x 39"), 
      lap (57" x 82" - could be made shorter if desired),
      twin/double (75" x 88")

yardage amounts for all sizes given

number of blocks for all sizes given

template for sails

layout diagrams for each size

and, as always, full, detailed instructions for a confident beginner quilter to complete their own Seafarer quilt.

What's also great about this pattern is that more boats could be added for a whole fleet of sailboats!

If you've fallen in love with Seafarer, head over to Etsy - the pattern is available as an immediate downloadable PDF file. Send me a picture of your version of Seafarer - I'm sure others would love to see! 

Happy Quilting!
