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.
Now separate your turnover pieces into the color combination's you'd like for your blocks.
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.
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.
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 take this piece and sew it to the side of your panel.
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.
Now sew the top and bottom sections of the quilt together.
1- 87"x83" deep blue sea quilt.
