I did a bunch of customization for her. The boat flags are a Polish and American flag for the parents and I hand embroidered the baby's name on it.
I used an off white for the background for more durability for a baby quilt and since Salt Water has a a bit of off white throughout it.
The quilting I did the same way as my sisters.
She wanted to hang the quilt initially so I added corner pockets so a dowel rod could be inserted. I'm hoping it works well, I've never used this method on such a big quilt.
The binding I pulled from Prince Charming. It went so well I couldn't resist.
She also asked me to make her two coordinating pillow covers. I made one sailboat like the ones on the quilt.
The other I made an anchor with some patchwork.
I hope she's as happy with everything as I am! I can't wait to see what she does with the rest of her nursery.
