Patchsmith Sampler Block 27 - Anchor

Block 27 - Anchor

We are sailing through the Patchsmith Sampler sew-along but this week we will drop anchor just long enough to make a fun nautical block.

Block 27 ‘Anchor’ is a simple make. There is just one thing to watch for and that is that you keep the H pieces positioned with the 3” as the width and the 3¼” as the height. Patchsmith measurements are always given in the format width x height.    
Block 27- Anchors Away

The pattern diagrams show them as the rectangles that they are but with only ¼” difference between width and height you could quite easily turn them without noticing until you come to stitch all the pieces together. 
A sea of turquoise!

So set anchor and be sure to share a picture or two over on Instagram (#block27anchor) or Flickr.

Until next time .......
