Audition for Sewvivor!

Rach at Family Every After is hosting the 3rd Sew-vivor competition-this time it's quilters edition!
In order to audition, you must pick one quilt that you think represents your best work.
I am entering my "Sweet Seas" Nautical quilt!
This quilt was started last August and completed in October, right when I was getting ready to start my freshman year of college.  I actually hand stitched the binding on in my dorm room!
The quilting was done by Melissa at Sew Shabby Quilting.  She did a wonderful job and the Van Gogh quilting pattern really enhances the beachy feel of the quilt.
The quilt pattern is called Frippery and it can be found here for free!
I had so much fun selecting the fabric for this quilt.  I used a combination of many different collections, Out to Sea by Sarah Jane, Riley Blake Shuffle, Architextures and even some batiks!
The back is pieced and uses some extra scraps that were leftover!
