COME SAIL AWAY...

Today is the first Tuesday of the month and that means it's time for Quilt Block Mania blog tour day - YAY!!

July 2021- This month's FREE quilt block theme is Travel with beautiful earth tones for our color story!  

Wouldn't it be amazing to travel the world on a Sailboat???

Have you ever felt the freedom of the wind propelling you on the water? It's quite a feeling...

Way way back, a friend of mine took me out on a little sailboat in Tobermory ON where the coastal waters of Georgian Bay and Lake Huron meet. I can still remember the exhilaration when a big gust of wind would come up and our speed would increase.

Now, travelling the world... I'd choose a little bigger of a boat lol!!! .... a girl can dream right!?! ;)

In the meantime, I'll continue to create some pretty little blocks until that day arrives!

I love how quickly this block comes together... create a few half square triangles in different sizes then stitch on some background pieces and voila... ready to sail away.

The HST can be solid, or for some extra fun and a little scrap busting, stitch a variety of widths to create some colourful sails!

                      

The block is free on my site only until the end of this month. So make sure to grab yours by signing up for my newsletter here.
