Sailboats are ready to sail...

A finish! The sailboat quilt is done. Another quilt from my clean-out-this-stash project. The sailboats were left from a baby quilt and I just couldn't throw them away. I think that is how my stash got way out of hand - I just can't throw fabric away! I added strips of bright colors and cut some strips to include a sailboat or two or three.

The back is blue with little white flecks. I added a column of bright colors to add interest. 

This donation quilt is 44.5" by 59". I used Dream Cotton batting and Aurifil thread for the piecing and the quilting. I machine quilted waves using a walking foot. The quilt has already been laundered so you can see a bit of those puckers that I love.


We saw the doctor and we got meds - LOTS of meds. It's taken a while but we are both FINALLY feeling better. A few days ago, we both were able to go a whole day without a nap - long naps like 2 hours or more. We both still have a cough and aren't 100% but we are MUCH better and the doctor says we are no longer contagious. We are not usually sick so this has been unusual for us and it's been off and on for almost 2 months.

Today I walked on the treadmill - my first real exercise in weeks. It felt good but I think it will take a few days to get my endurance back. At least we are on the road back to normal, whatever that is!


  1. Whatever 'it' is, it's going around here, too!!!! Super nasty and way too long lasting....ending with a nagging cough that lingers. Take care with the holidays on the horizon...that will be a challenge!?!

  2. It is bronchitis, sinusitis,... and seems to be everywhere - I just call it the crud. Doctor said we were passing germs back and forth. We'd feel some better then be sick again. Antibiotics, steroids, inhalers, nasal sprays, ... I felt like we brought the pharmacy home. We have heard the nagging cough lasts quite a while. At least the cough is no where near as bad as it was. ~Jeanne

  3. Oh no! I hope with all the meds (and a chlorox wipe of the house - light switches, remotes, phones, door knobs, handles on cabinets, etc) you both feel better and recover from 'the crud'. A very cute little quilt you created.
