My blocks made and a WIP

After I sent out the June partners last night I headed into my cave to get my blocks underway.

My partner is Bobbie who requested any block in cream and green.  Now I was not sure if Bobbie wanted dark green or light green so I made both.

 And as it turns out the pattern gave instructions for 4 blocks, so Bobbie gets two of each. The block pattern that I used is Birds in the air.

And today I decided to work on my sailing regatta for awhile.  I had already popped the spotty strips to each side of the blocks and today I joined them with the navy sail boat print fabric.

I still have 2 boats and one star, not enough to complete another row. So this can go back in the WIP for a little while as I collect a few more of these little cuties.  I always get inspired when I see quilts in progress, so I hoped this has helped others like me with ideas.  I will probably make it a bit wider too, with perhaps one or two more on the end, lets see - after all it is a WIP.


  1. Oh the boats are just darling...I think I see one of mine in there! Its just so cute!

  2. oh wow .. thank you so much Sue ... either green would have been wonderful ..... but both are excellent ...

    I should have pics of your boats later tonight ...
