Spoondrift – Nautical Sampler Quilts book


Spoondrift book by Janet Clare

A fabulous pattern book for a nautical sampler quilt, celebrating all things nautical featuring 25 quilt blocks & two quilt settings.

Spoondrift (n.)
A showery sprinkling of seawater or fine spray swept from the tops of waves

This fabulous book features a beautiful sampler quilt that is inspired by cherished carefree days by the seaside and celebrates all things nautical. Featuring twenty-five beautiful blocks and two quilt settings (65″ x 72″ or 60″ x 60″) this quilt is a fantastic skill builder with appliqué, foundation piecing and traditional piecing techniques including, half-square triangles, square-in-square, flying geese and drunkards path blocks.

The photographs of the finished quilt in this book show Moda fabrics from my ‘Ebb and Flow’ collection which was released in October 2019 and is now in short supply. The digital images show the blocks made in Janet’s ‘To the Sea’ Moda fabrics, which will be available July 2022. However, the quilt is quite scrappy and made in just four tones so you can easily choose your own fabrics – use the little colour swatches in the requirements to help you select other fabrics.

Book summary:
> A4 size – 78 pages, perfect bound book
> Detailed requirements and instructions for all aspects of block construction, including piecing techniques with detailed diagrams, creating appliqué, adding free-motion detail, construction of the blocks and piecing the quilt top, layering up and binding
> Full of photographs and digital images of the blocks, you can confidently recreate Janet’s design.
> Full-size templates, including boats, whales, fish, gulls and much more! The full-size templates are very versatile and can also be used for embroidery and paper crafts. Why not use each block individually as a piece of textile art or as the front of a cushion?

Janet’s ‘Spoondrift’ quilt is inspired by cherished carefree days growing up by the seaside.
