Summer Sailboat

Summer Sailboat Quilt Pattern | Whims And Fancies

 

Purchase Summer Sailboat Pattern

 

I love sailboats.  I see them as giant winged birds floating in the sea.  Many a year ago I even fancied taking sailing lessons.  I even had my husband teach me how to swim. However, that ended up having quite a different effect.  I became addicted to swimming and spent a lot of time at the pool.  I became a fairly decent swimmer, but the plans for learning how to sail fell by the wayside.

You see, I was going to the pool so much that my old tote bag fell apart completely.  By that time I had learned how to sew however, so I made another swimming tote bag with pockets for everything.

I still love to watch sailboats go by, their white sails surrounded by blue waters and the blue sky.  My mind drifts into a trance, punctuated by thoughts of adventure.  So, when I got a request to make a sailboat quilt pattern, I just had to accept it.

Purchase Summer Sailboat Pattern

 

Here’s my finished sailboat block.  The 12″ Summer Sailboat quilt pattern is now available on my shop .  Many thanks to those who have purchased it already.

That’s my One Monthly Goal finished, and I will be linking up with Patty at end of the month.  I really like the way this block turned out.  When I showed it to my husband, he initially thought I had painted it.  I love the crisp look that paper piecing provides!  I will be hand quilting puffy clouds on this one.

Happy Sewing,
-Soma

    Sailboats are a simple object but there’s something so serene about them. Your squares are gorgeous!

    Oh wow what a gorgeous sailboat you have created. At our old house in NZ we looked over Tauranga Harbour and I loved watching the boats on the water …. it seems like another lifetime! Thank you for linking up to TGIFF :)

    How very clever, Soma; the design, the combination of the different fabrics and the stitching! The quilting of puffy clouds will be the perfect finishing touch. Swimming is a wonderful pastime, isn’t it. As a child I could always be found swimming at the beach or the local swimming pool. The watching of sailboats on the blue, blue ocean is rather entrancing.

    Beautiful sailboat. Reminds me of my first sailboat ride last summer. I just might have to get this pattern and make a block to commemorate it.
