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.
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.
Linking up with the linky parties on my Events And Links page.
