Patchsmith Sampler Block 50 - Yacht

Block 50 - Yacht

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.

The Patchsmith Sampler pattern book is available from Amazon

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 straightforward patchwork. 

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).
Red, white and blue can create a pretty yacht.
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.

  2. Congratulations on a lovely ending to your Patchsmith's Sampler SAL. I have enjoyed every block - even though I haven't made them all yet!

    1. Thank you for joining with me Julie. Life gets in the way often doesn't it? But sewing should never be a chore so it seems only fitting the block tutorials remain for as long as I continue sewing. Thank you for your continued support. xx
