Nantucket Quilt Pattern - The All Blues One! from Busy Hands Quilts

Today I'm sharing this all blue Nantucket quilt.  It turned out even better than I imagined it would.



Nantucket was so named because the design reminded me of life rings, which reminded me of the sea, which reminded me of Nantucket, a place I've never been, but have sailed past, unbeknownst to me, on a cruise in 2018.  The Harry and Alice version of Nantucket reflects the life rings design even more, to me.



Fabrics in Nantucket the All Blue Version

Fabrics for this quilt were curated from ...
