Quilt Ahoy, Mateys!

One of Silver Threads Quilt Guild’s programs is making items for children in need. We have a lot of donated fabric and batting we can use, but I opted to do my own thing.

I used Michael Miller’s free Making Waves Quilt pattern and his Ahoy Matey fabrics. This pattern was straightforward and made up in no time.

The backing is the same fabric as used for the first inner border.



Our guild also participates in the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge, so I made one to match the quilt. It was simple to make using the tutorial by Michele Bilyeu of With Heart and Hands.

The result was a fun project for me and a cute set to donate to a little boy in need.
