Deep Blue Sea

Hello again! I'm Natalia from Piece N Quilt and I am so happy to be sharing this tutorial.
The main part of this quilt is made from a panel and some turnovers.

2 Nautical & Nice Turnovers
1 Nautical & Nice panel
7 yards Nautical & Nice Bubble Regatta Red (background & backing)
1 Yard Nautical & Nice Ropes Regatta Red for binding
2 Yards Nautical & Nice Surf White Cap
2 Yards Nautical & Nice Waves Ocean  
1 Yard Nautical & Nice Stripe White Cap
1/4 Yard Nautical & Nice Ropes Blue

Start out by cutting  36 -6" squares from your background fabric.
Cut in 1/2 diagonally. As shown in the image above.
Cut in half again in the opposite direction. As shown in the image above.
Now separate your turnover pieces into the color combination's you'd like for your blocks.

Now cut your turnovers in half as show in the image above.
Cut 72 - 4" squares.
Now stitch lay your block out as shown in the image above.
Stitch together in rows.
Now stitch the block together to create a block similar to the one above. Repeat this process until you have 18 blocks.
Now cut your sashing. Cut 7 - 2.5" strips. Since I used a directional fabric I cut the sashing for the sides of the block with the fabric going the direction shown in the image above.
For the top and bottoms of the blocks cut 7 - 2.5" strips withe the fabric going the direction shown in the image above.
Cut 33 - 2.5" squares for the cornerstones of the sashing.
Stitch the bottom section of the quilt together as shown in the image above.
From your white background fabric cut 4 - 2.5" strips.
Add a border around one block for the top left corner of your quilt. As shown in the image above.
Sew the other two blocks together with the white sashing as shown in the image above.
Now take your panel and trim all of the borders off.
You want your panel to look like this.
Now stitch the single block with white border to a 17.5"x9" white strip. Then sew to a piece of sashing as shown in the image above.
Now take this piece and sew it to the side of your panel.
For the right side where the applique words will go sew a 9"x33.5" piece. As shown in the image above.
Now you will print out onto paper the saying "You and me and the deep blue sea".
For the section shown above you will need to stitch a 10.5"x29" piece as shown in the image above.
Using our starch applique tutorial you will applique the words onto the two sections.
After the applique is complete you will sew the top section of the quilt together as shown in the image above.
Now sew the top and bottom sections of the quilt together.
Using your stripe fabric you will add a 3.5" border.
  Now quilt, bind with the red material and enjoy.

1- 87"x83" deep blue sea quilt.

kokina said...

well, i follow this blog each day.
i buy many many many moda fabrics.
i would like to see some project with a little bit more of taste.
this one is really terrible.

i believe that u should give to your customers something more.
it seems to me that every quilter makes a project and that project is published here.

i like simple projects, but in the last period i didnt see one deserving to be made.

i am a little disappointed.

sorry for my english, i am from italy.
hoping u post my comment.
thanks a lot.

Jo said...

I look at this page most days,and love this one.The stars make it look like it is more complicated than it is. Perfect for a little boys room. Not sure what prompted the comment from the italian quilter. We all have different tastes but don't see the point of critizing someone elses work. If you don't like, don't make it.

Keep the great projects coming

Great creative quilt Natalia, the top part would even be cute as a wall quilt.

paulette said...

Crystal Stanworth said...

Candied Fabrics said...

natalia, this is fantastic! great job! I love the way the lack of dark sashing in the upper blocks really accentuates the panel!
