With this block completed, I now have 24 of these seven inch beauties.
I think this may be my favorite block arrangement so far! I love the effect the white squares create. A large quilt in this style, made in rainbow colors, would be wonderful. Unfortunately, I don't want to make any more seven inch blocks, so this will be the extent of this project. Maybe I'll tackle a larger version - with larger blocks - at some point in the future.
These sailboat blocks were a souvenir from the Pensacola Quilter's Guild Show of 1993. They sat around in a drawer until 2016, when I decided to assemble them as part of the blue Rainbow Scrap Challenge month. All the assembly fabrics came from my scrap stash.
After the sailboats were assembled, they languished some more because I couldn't decide how to quilt them. Finally I decided to just "get 'er done" and added batting and backing and started hand quilting. The quilting isn't fancy, but it holds the layers together and was good practice.
The backing is scraps of lobster fabric from another quilt. I even added a hanging sleeve!
There was an affectionate voice in my head reminding me to add a label - and so I did!
I'm adding my blue scraps to the RSC link-up - always fun and always inspirational!
