You could be excused
for thinking that this final block in the Patchsmith’s Sampler sew-along will
have us sailing off into the sunset but that just isn’t true. Every block in the book, together with its
respective blog post/tutorial can be found HERE. They are not going anywhere. And I am just an email away from providing
help and assistance should you need.
So the final block is
a lovely little make. There is nothing
difficult or new with this block as it is made up of quick corners and
It is also a lovely block to add to a project or quilt intended for a male recipient, whatever their age. But remember, women like to sail as well (I was taught to sail when I was at school).
I particularly like using red, white and blue for this block making it a great Labour Day or 4th
of July block.
Whatever use you find
for it, I hope you will share your blocks over on Instagram (#block50yacht) so
that we can all share inspiration and fabric fun.
So there we have it –
a year-long project comes to a close. I
will be back with a couple of new mug rug books this year, together with an
exploration of how quilting/stitching can help us find a little bit of peace in
a hurried world. I will also be using some of my Sampler Blocks in projects throughout the year. So I
hope to see you back here again real soon.
