Embroidered Felt Fishing Boats on Canvas

By on 2-19-2011 in art quilts, Embroidery, Vintage Patterns


These two fishing boats were published in the McCall’s Needle Art Volume IV magazine. A romantic piece of embroidery that was sewn on canvas using the sewing machine and straight stitch. Felt was used for the boats, sun and building. Wouldn’t these boats look great using the new threads and fabrics available today? I can envision painted and stitched boats sailing over a large summer tote. A sea coast landscape quilt could be the background for one of the boats.

  1. I made both of these when I was in high school. When we cleared out my mom’s apartment I found the original magazine. It made my day. It would be fun to remake them with new colors and add more embellishments.
