"Setting Sail" Baby Quilt

For an expected baby boy, I think it's adorable. The pattern came from issue #19 of the now extinct Modern Quilts Unlimited magazine. I was very sad to see this magazine die, but I did find a substitute in an online Aussie modern quilting magazine.
The quilting is meant to resemble waves and I placed a fishy looking row at the very top and bottom. I love the clean modern look of the quilt and it's so fast and simple, once the HST's were done it went together really fast.  I used batiks for the three blues and the yellow but next time I will make more contrast between the two darker blues. I say "next time" because I am sure I will make this again.
As frequently happens in my quilting life the backing I chose from stash was a bit small so I was able to use up most of a scrap of blue to enlarge the back and make it more interesting.
And of course the wonderful soft and safe Dream Angel batting from my favorite [and really only] batting company, Quilter's Dream!
