Sail Boat Block
Today we’ll make this cutie.
I had fun going through my Thimbleberries yardage today!
- 3 cream recs. 1 1/2″ x 2 1/2″
- 2 cream sqs. 1 1/2″
- 1 black rec. 1 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
- 2 pink sqs. 1 1/2″
I used my “Lazy Susan” technique for both
the half flying geese units & the bottom of the boat.
Using my new Creative Grids
“I Love My Quilting Friends”
I noticed that I can slide it anywhere along the dashed line
to make the cut without a number obstructing my view.
Not that it’s a huge deal but I noticed.
Make 2 half flying geese units.
I pressed these seams open.
I also remembered how handy the
4 1/2″ Creative Grids ruler
is for cutting off both corners of a unit
that I can trim at once
when the squares do not overlap each other :)
(but not until the 3rd block lol).
I pressed these seams open too.
Arrange the pieces then assemble the block.
Make a couple more!
