Smooth Sailing by Ricky Tims
The antique quilt you see (above left), was given to me by my long-time friend, Susan. It was hand pieced by her grandmother. I loved how some of the sails went in different directions. I'm sure that was not intentional, but it created whimsy. When I recreated the pattern to make my own rendition of the quilt, I intentionally had various triangles of the sails going in the "the wrong" direction to mimic that whimsical feature in my quilt. I like the quirky element of ship sails gone wrong. Do you prefer this "purposeful wrong orientation" or would you make them all as they should be?
