A quilt called Regatta

Inspired by my Dad, photography, sailboats, modern quilts and Cherri House!

My Inspiration

A mix of Moda Bella solids. 

A scrappy binding.

Regatta

Growing up my Dad would take us down to watch the sailboats race on Wednesday nights.  The colors of the sails and the sea would magically change as the sun set.  The sails would dance across the water puffing and gliding with the wind.  This quilt is for my Dad, who loves blue, taught me the difference between isosceles and scalene triangles and loves photography as much as I do.
