Anchors Aweigh Quilt A Long

Have you seen this awesome quilt pattern?
It's so pretty but masculine too!

From Tula Pink for her new fabric collection Salt Water for Free Spirit Fabrics.

This quilt is done in the mostly Aqua color part of her collection, but she also has seaweed and coral colors, you can check them out here.

The quilt pattern is FREE and you can download it directly from Tula Pinks blog, here.

I thought it would be really fun to have a Quilt A Long and share the process of making this quilt.

I don't need such a big quilt for myself (it's finished size is 90" x 96") so I thought I would make 2 smaller quilts, I have already downsized the pattern to fit my kids beds (or they could make great lap quilts).  I will share with you 2 rows on the first Saturday of the month starting February 2013, we should finish the quilts by the end of June, just in time to Anchor Aweigh and go sailing somewhere.

Since my blog is supposed to be about Traveling Thru Greece, I thought it would be a fun idea to visit each island group during our QAL, here's the schedule:
February 2 - THE IONIAN ISLANDS (row 1 and 2)
March 2 - THE CYCLADES (row 3 and 4)
April 6 - CRETE (row 5 and 6)
May 4 - THE DODECANESE (row 7 and 8)
June 1 - THE NORTHEAST AEGEAN ISLANDS (binding and quilting)
Show off your quilts on June 30th, I will be setting up a Flikr group for this QAL.
Grab a the button on the side and join us for a tour of the Greek Islands.
Get Ready to Sail Away on the Anchor Aweigh Quilt A Long.
