Sweet Canoes

Sweet Canoes

What a darling little quilt to decorate a girl's room!

Four crossed canoe blocks of cream, white, lilac and sea green are bordered with a floral print. Cutting was simple with yet another Accuquilt die. I use them nearly all the time now.  

Backing is a herringbone print in white and sea green. I quilted with white thread in a straight stitch, horizontally and vertically in a square/rectangle design. It measures at 22" square and right now it serves as a mat on my sewing table.

I used up some remnants with this one, but don't worry, I caught a fabric sale last week and ordered more.
