Sailing to Sleep

This quilt is a crib size quilt. I am naturally drawn to more feminine colors, and this is an attempt at a boy blanket.  The blue swirls reminded me of ocean waves. The orange squares have little palm leaves scattered throughout. I smile every time I look at the puffy clouds. Oh man, I long to go sailing!
From a distance the orange squares really show a secondary pattern that was unexpected and fun!

I was inspired by the sailboat motif that I wanted to use for quilting.
