Made for the baby of a sailing family, I based this quilt on one I saw in an old Australian Patchwork & Quilting magazine. It was called Night Fishing by Cynthia Nicklin.
With his name embroidered as the boats name and his birthdate as the sail number, I added ‘And I shall sail away to the land of Nod’ in the bottom right corner hoping that it would have a subliminal effect. (If it was just that easy!)
And I had it quilted by Sue of Sue’s Top Finish as I really wanted to get it finished and hand it to the new owner.
