Ships and Sailors - A New Pattern

Introducing my new pattern called Ships and Sailors! It comes in 6 sizes from Baby to King. The pattern includes directions for a 3 fabric quilt from yardage or a multi-fabric quilt from fat quarters. 

This blue quilt is a large lap generously sized at 70.5" square. It is made from 3 different blue fabrics, a light, a medium, and a dark.  It shows off the pattern nicely with the dark fabric as the anchor. (Pun intended!)

This green and black version is a small lap quilt sized at 56.5" by 70.5". This one is made from fat quarters. I love that you can still see the blocks, and it almost sparkles like gems.

You might be wondering where I came up with a name like Ships and Sailors. The name comes from a game my kids like to play. They learned it at camp several years ago. It is very similar to Simon Says, but it involves a captain and his shipmates. As I was designing this pattern, I thought of this game. Mostly because I was working with blue (it's my favorite color) and the blocks remind me of boating.

You can find Ships and Sailors as a PDF  in my pattern shop at Etsy.

  1. It looks so different in the scrappy version and I love it! Great design. I'm going to check it out. Die-cutter friendly?

  2. It looks great...congrats on releasing another pattern!

  3. Hi Shannon,
    How did I miss commenting on this new pattern? It was over a week ago . . . and it has been in the back of my mind ever since. I truly cannot believe both colorways are from the same pattern. In the blue one, I distinctly see the pinwheels and the alternate block, while in the green and black it isn't nearly as obvious. And as big of a fan of pinwheels that I am, I am leaning toward the green and black version. I think this version is going on my to-do list shortly and the pattern is coming on home to Wisconsin for me. ~smile~ Roseanne

  4. Beautiful quilts and congrats on the new pattern!

  5. Beautiful pattern! The different color ways have something different to focus on. Great work!
