Bruce's Quilt

 A paper-pieced quilt for our friend Bruce. It was too big for me to machine quilt it myself -- it's ~56" x 62" -- I sent it to Quilt Hollow for her expert long-arm machine quilting.
 The theme of the quilt is anchors, stars -- for an ex-Navy guy. The quilting has stars & anchors, too. Hard to see in the pix.
The colors are navy, gray, light gold, off white, black.

  1. I love this quilt and would like to do something similar for my son-in-law who is also an ex-Navy man. I'd be happy to have the basic pattern and/or any insight you can give me into fabric choices.

    1. I used Lakeside Gatherings by Primitive Gatherings for Moda @ modafabrics.com. The paper-pieced pattern is "Prism" by Fresh Lemons. Hope this helps!
