"Just when you have time to help me share -
I'd love for you to show this preemie quilt to rctq. Another
scrap quilt - and the sails are simply HSTs. The boats are no-
brainers too. Just skinny rectangles with the bow and stern achieved
by stitching a tiny square at each end and flipping them back.
The quilt is from Fons & Porter July 03 designed by Ann Gallo and
Susan Raban. The only change I made was to toss in some blank blocks
of sea. Sailboats dance in the breeze instead of marching in order. "

What a precious little quilt- absolutely adorable! As always- bless you, Polly, for all the quilts you make with such love for the tiniest of babies.

Wow, that was fast. Thank you so much. Jenn asked about size. This one's just about a yard square but there's really no limit to what could be done. More boats, more blanks or less of either. The only hard part of this quilt is trying to stop. This is the quilt to make if you want to do one just for the fun of it. Polly

What a fun quilt! I love the different colored sailboats. They really do look like they're running on the breeze.

What fun! Thanks Jenn; and Well Done Polly. It is so great to be able to see your work.
I had a little cuddle with a two-month old yesterday. I bet he'd love this one! .

Gosh that is too very cute. I am curious what the size is since it is for the tiny babies. I really like the ocean spaces you have built in.
Thanks for helping share Jen. Taria

Thank you, Patti. And I'm jealous. It's been a too long time since I got to snuggle a new baby. Aren't they wonderful? Polly
"Patti" What fun!

Just sort of a general plan - hospitals usually want their babies to weigh at least 5 pounds before they'll let them go home. YMMV. 36" square or WOF is plenty big for the 'first' quilt. Another thought - newborn's quilts need to be . . . gee. Can't think of a word. Sturdy sounds sort of rough. The quilts don't need to be fussy / fragile. They have to be laundered lots and can't expect the luxury of gentle care. Polly

That's so adorable! And coming from Polly, I definitely wouldn't expect those sailboats to be marching in order. In fact, I would have been disappointed if they were!
Some little one is going to love that quilt.

Sweet as can be, Polly. I love it. And I understand about sturdy. It is the right word. Anything you use with a newborn needs to stand up to laundering with bleach, in my opinion.
