Luke's Sailboat Quilt

I just can't wait til he's back from vacation.  Do you think he'll like it?  Well, he might not care yet as he's so little, but his older brother probably will and I know his mom will.

The song "Trains and Boats and Planes"  kept going through my head when I was doing this one. His older brother has a train quilt that I made for him.  You can see it on my Crib quilt page.  It's the one with trains.
 If they have another boy I think I'll make him a plane quilt.

I enjoyed quilting different sashing ideas on each of these strips.
My friends from Kirk's Korner did the embroidery for me.  

And I back all my baby quilts with flannel.  I love it.

This  quilt should get a lot of good wear.  Maybe it will be a dragger.


  1. Very cute! I especially love the rickrack for waves. Another good idea for one of my future quilts. I need to make some baby boy quilts anyway!

  2. Oh, wow! This is a fabulous quilt, Elaine! Well done. :D

  3. That is so sweet! I think I need to have one done for Isabella!

  4. It's lovely - I'm sure he will love it even if he doesn't yet appreciate the work or the patterns.

  5. Elaine I just looked at your blog that is soooooo cute thank you so much for making him such a beautiful quilt ... Luke will love it ! It will look so nice in his cradle! ill have to keep an eye on matt to make sure he doesn't put it on his bed.thank you

  6. Wow that rickrack for the waves is really something. It adds SO MUCH!! I really like that idea!
