Boat House! But first, we must confess. We don’t have a boat. Let alone a boat house. We don’t even live by a lake. Or an ocean. Or any body of water you could but a boat on. But we do have a creek. Or is it a crick? My husband and I always debate that. I actually know that it is “creek”, but a whole lot of people around here say “crick”, so I think that’s okay, too. Anyway, yesterday we went down by the creek to take photos of The Boat House.
And I also must confess that The Boat House is my favorite. I know I always say that, but really. I’m in love with this collection. Some of you may remember that a long, long time ago I blogged about how I always wanted to do a patriotic, 4th of July type collection. And my mom and sister always just rolled their eyes. Mostly because we don’t want to leave out all those people outside the US that buy our fabric. So we had an idea. We could use the good ol’ red, white and blue color scheme without making it too “American”. So the collection turned out more nautical than patriotic, but I can still make a red, white and blue quilt for my favorite holiday!
So here it is, The Boat House.
First, the blues.
Here is my favorite print- the nautical flags.
Next, the reds.
And everything together.
And these little “flags” are actually blocks of a new quilt.
The pre-cuts are so yummy!
Now the fun part. We have a Moda pre-cut we are giving away! So if you would like to win some Boat House fabric looooong before it will be available to purchase (I’m thinking it won’t come out until about January), just leave us a comment letting us know what print or colorway is your favorite in the collection.
We hope you like it as much as we do. Thanks for taking a look! And even though we don’t have a lake, the creek is just as fun!
