Sailboat Quilt Top

After a long break from quilting, I felt really good about finishing this quilt top today. The pattern turned out better than I had expected and I love the low-volume color palette.

 I think this quilt is a great mix of traditional and modern styles, combining the very literal boats with random squares that mimic the sky and water.
