Catching up with a nautical quilt!

When there's a nautical themed's time to have some Fun With Flags. Especially when the baby's name is six letters. Nautical quilt ahoy!

I drafted the signal flags to finish at 6" square. I framed them in brown to ensure that I didn't lose any of the definition with a dark blue or white flag against the navy and white fabrics. I then surrounded those with alternating bands of navy blue and white courthouse steps-style. Each block finished at 16" square.

The signal flags are made out of leftover solids from Niece Quiche's quilt. I bound it with the same brown as the frames in the blocks. I think the combination of solids with the extremely controlled color palette turned out rather striking.

Biggest blocks I've made
