Magellanic Cloud

by Jo
(Gilbert, AZ)


I made this quilt for my grandson as he transitions from crib to twin bed. It's a one-block-wonder, made of about 1000 60-degree, fussy-cut triangles.

As complicated as it looks, it is amazingly easy to put together. It is machine quilted. Hand embroidered at the bottom is a phrase from John Masefield's poem, "Sea Fever"...

"All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by."


A note from the Editor:

For those of you who are interested, there are several books available with instructions to make a One Block Wonder. You can find them here.

You can find the full text of the poem here.

Enjoy!

Gorgeous

Really beautiful. I think you should save it until he gets married, as little boys can be rough on quilts.
