Designer: The blocks in this quilt were designed by Sara Nephew and presented in the book Quilted Adventures. The original blocks were re-sized to use meet the space criteria of AAQI Priority Quilts and to work them into a picture. The sail boat and hot air balloon were reduced 1/3 and the seagull and the tall ship are 1/6 of the original size. Written permission was given by Alicia’s Attic, current owner of the rights to these patterns.
Materials/Techniques: Traditionally pieced and bordered from cotton fabrics Quilted with clear thread.
Artist Statement: In the past I have made several child sized quilts from the blocks in this and other books by Sara Nephew and they were always well received. One child had so many favorite animals and birds that I reduced the block's sizes and arranged them in a scene-like quilt. This is another much smaller example of that play quilt.
Dedication: To the children who keep us on our toes and make us happy and energized by their enthusiasm and love.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
This quilt earned $59.64 for the AAQI.
