Nantucket Quilt Pattern!

This classic nautical quilt sparkles with summer colors. The backing and binding are solid ecru, like sails. The ecru ties look like seagulls in the air, and upon close inspection the little knots resemble boat rigging. 

This pattern is for a quilt 61" wide x 85" long. It will keep your tallest loved one warm and cozy. Perfect size for college dorm beds: XL Twin. Yardage per block is provided so you can easily make your quilt any size you like. 

If you are new to the idea of improvisational quilt design, this pattern is for you! You'll see how to lay out the quilt 2 ways: the traditional way and using improvisation. Directions for optional tying included. 
Skill level: EASY

Karen, why is it called a "nautical" quilt? Is that an east coast thing? It's certainly pretty!
