“Ailey Loves Lighthouses” Quilt

Ailey loves lighthouses.

We have to go visit as many as we can whenever she comes to Maine.

Here’s how her lighthouse quilt came out–thanks to Denise Lanier for this set of blocks given to me about ten years ago.

I kept the quilting simple–meandering on the long arm with a light green thread and outline stitching of the lighthouses on the domestic machine in a darker blue thread.

I had enough of this great fabric for the backing:

It works well with the front:

This quilt will hang in Ailey’s bedroom–to remind her of Maine, of lighthouses, and of her grandmother’s love.
