Sailing along!

I have been working on piecing up the backing for my "Scrapbag Sailboats" quilt.  I made more little sailboats and appliqued them to a strip of  Kona Snow.  I also made a wavy strip and appliqued that down as well, using the rawedge technique.  Looks really cute   I bought the piece of fabric with the banners to make the backing...couldn't resist it. I have also decided to try something new with this project.  I will be using Quilter's Dream Poly for batting.  A few  quilters that I follow have been raving about it so thought I would give it a try.  Will let you know how it works.  I have my FM quilting plan in my head..somewhat...and  I am anxious to get it started. 
I will be using a Sulky Blendable in a blue variegation. 

I made this quilt for my QuiltySister back a while ago, and I have been waiting for her to visit to give it to her. She loves it! I named it "Rabbit Stewie".   I made it for her to commemorate her precious bunny rabbit "Stewie" , who she had to give away to a new home before she moved from Holland to Malaysia.  That was a few years ago, but she still misses him.  The pattern is from Rabbit's Haven and is called "Huggable Me".  I won the pattern in a giveaway and knew I had to make it for her

I received this gorgeous pair of scissors as a gift from QuiltySister.  Love them!  I adore scissors and I have a nice collection. 

Hope you have time to do something quilty today!
