Charming Christmas Three Ships and Snowmen Child’s Pieced Quilt This quilt has the classic “The Ship” pattern arranged like the Xmas Carol “I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In On Christmas Day in the Morning.” And what was in those ships all three? Well they are done in a printed pattern filled with snowmen with carrot noses, cozy knit hats, wrapped packages and Christmas trees. Colors are bright red, green, yellow, orange, blue and black with a sparkle glitter on the white to mimic snow. Alternating patches are sky blue “water”. They have tied up at the dock in the harbor, ready with goodies. Backed with soft red flannel brought forward to bind edges. All cotton. Puffy batting. Hand pieced and tied with cotton thread into a comfort. Vintage 1980’s. Measures 54” x 42 1/2”. In excellent condition for a soft old friend. Colors bright, fabric strong, no wear or stains. Clean and washed. Lovely to hang on a wall or drape on a chair or a bed. Sweet for a child’s nursery or bedroom. Cozy under the Christmas Tree!
