Nautical quilt finish

From this...


...to this.


I tried to keep the quilting fairly simple and outlined a centre diamond shape right down the centre of the quilt.


And the back is just one piece of the same fabric


I hope the person who has paid me to make this for them (to give to someone as a birthday present)
likes it...


...as much as I have grown to like it.


And as it's a Monday and I have a finish, I am going to link this to {Sew} Modern Monday at Canoe Ridge Creations.

  3. Wow! This is one of the first times I think the quilting has improved the look of a quilt top. Normally I love the clean fresh look of the top before it is quilted, and it kinda looses something afterwords. But your quilting on this has really brought out the fabrics! Love it :-)

    As for leprEchauns: it was the first thing that came to mind as a translation of 'kabouters' LOL
