Frank tells us the Sailing Ship was his first attempt at appliqué and wouldn't you know it as the quilt won a second place for appliqué at the Sea Island Quilters. Frank says "I designed and appliquéd and my wife Ginger put on borders and quilted it. Just to keep me humble Ginger won first place appliqué." Congratulations Frank. The design was made with Quilt-Pro quilt design software.
We can see why Ginger's quilt was a first place winner.
Ginger this is a lovely quilt. Congratulations on the ribbon.
