You got the notion, Said I'd like to know where you got the notion.
To Rock the Boat, Don't rock the boat Baby.....LOL!
I know some of my older followers will remember this song. It's such a fun one to sing. Well anyway while piecing this quilt made with the ocean wave block I was trying to think up a name. I was coming up blank. Lots of ideas but none of them that had real meaning.
Thank goodness for internet surfing...pun intended! Searching ocean songs, wave songs, and beach songs, poems and Images, much time was wasted.
It couldn't be just any title, this little quilt was quite a chore. Mini quilts are much harder than full sized. A few Sailor words have been tossed around the studio in the last week!
Not all the points are perfect but seeing how these HST's finish at 3/4 inch I can live with the occasional missing point.
I tried to somehow work in tulips or flowers into the name. The scraps for this quilt came from the larger quilt you see in the background. You can find more information about it here.
Meet "Love and Devotion" The name came from a line in the song "Rock the boat"
Our love is like a ship on the ocean
we've been sailing with a cargo full of, love and devotion.
It fits perfectly! Lots of Love and Devotion went into making this little quilt (17x23). At times I wanted to quit.
The binding and the backing are from my older yukky stash. I like how it looks as a binding but EWWEEE! Not a fabric on my love list.
Another mini down and one more to go before I return to the design wall quilt. Enjoy your weekend, hopefully the snow is melting where you are and you can get out and enjoy some warmer temperatures. Its supposed to be in the 50's here this weekend and 60 by Monday! Wow! 60....seems like forever since we've had a day over freezing. See you soon!
