I’m thrilled to be able to share with you that a Sewhooked original, Floating Mariner, is part of the new  Contemporary Collection at Quilt My Phone!

Quilt My Phone, created by Cathleen Savage, offers awesome cases for phones, laptops and tablets, all with gorgeous quilts on the outside!



See all the Floating Mariner products right here!

To celebrate this fun and awesome happening, I’ve done a couple of things…

Floating Mariner

First, I’ve created new layouts and color schemes to inspire you, as well as updating the Floating Mariner pattern.

Floating Mariner Alternate Colors Floating Mariner Alternate Colors Floating Mariner Alternate Colors

Not into blue & lavender? Try a different color!

Floating Mariner Table Runner

The Floating Mariner table runner is made with four Floating Mariner blocks plus 4 extra 3″ units used as corner stones.

Try mixing Floating Mariner with a traditional block and see what happens!

Floating Mariner Quilt Layout 3

This one makes me think of fireworks! Red, White & Blue Floating Mariner made with 16 blocks plus 4 3″ units as cornerstones.

Floating Mariner Quilt Layout 2

I think this is my favorite of all the layouts I played with. Alternate Floating Mariner colorings combined.

Floating Mariner Quilt Layout 5

This one is totally different, putting Floating Mariner on point and leaving out the small corner pieces. Fun!

These layouts were created using Electric Quilt 7.  

Floating Mariner is my original design.

Sharing new ideas and colors isn’t the only way I want to celebrate! Now until February 29, you can get Floating Mariner for half price.

    Quilt my Phone! What a cute idea!

    I love all the Floating Mariner variations you showed us, too. Will you STOP?!? I’ve already got a whole year’s worth of projects lined up, now I HAVE to do something with Floating Mariner, too? 🙂

      I know, isn’t it fun?!

      I can’t stop, it’s my JOB to give you ideas, and besides, it’s too much fun to make you want to make All The Things!

    Hi Jennifer, Thank you, again, for sharing your wonderful creativity.
    It’s awe inspiring. I subscribed to Fat Quarterly so I could get your beautiful braided kaleidascope pattern.
    On another note, I get all of your posts by email except for TTMT! 😦 I know I mentioned it before and don’t want to repeat myself, but I miss it when it doesn’t show up in my inbox! Should I contact WordPress?
    Joy to you,

      Hi Carol,

      Thanks so much for always having kind words to share!

      I have tried to figure out why you don’t get TTMT, but I’m stymied. The email notifciations are all automatic through WordPress. I wonder if it’s because there’s a video embedded in the post? Hmmm. You might try sending them an email because I am clueless! At the very least, just know that I have never missed a Tuesday, though the time of day the post goes up can vary.
