Bobbing Sailboats

While in Sarasota, FL I found a great quilt shop which had lots of beautiful batik beach fabric. I decided to make a quilt for my sister who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. She wanted to recuperate from her surgery at her beach house. Hanging up at the quilt shop was a "Baby Sails" quilt. It gave me the idea to use sailboats. I used Atkinson's "Lucky Stars" pattern and substituted sailboats for the stars because I wanted a lap quilt size. Adding 3 borders brought the quilt to the size I wanted. I always use flannel fabric for the backing for extra warmth and snuggle-ness. (Is that a word?)
