I created this paper piecing template as part of the Nautical round of the Sewvivor sew-along. My father-in-law sailed a boat very similar to this one as a kid, and I gifted him this version to capture that memory of growing up in the Norwegian Sea Scout program. I really like how the Nightsky fabric from Rashida Coleman Hale adds a constellation feel to the background of the boat in this version.
Erica at ThreeLittlePumpkins on Instagram created this gorgeous version. I love how she captured a beautiful, calm day at sea while showcasing some movement in the sails with the Carolyn Friedlander Ledger fabric.
Heather at Quilts Actually used bright colors in her sailboat. I love it! I’m so excited that she’s using this as the center of her US/Canada Round Robin quilt adventure.
To celebrate, I want to give away two copies of the pattern. If you’d like to win one, just leave a comment telling me either how you’d use it or why you’re excited about sewing a sailboat! I’ll leave comments open until Sunday at midnight EST, and I’ll announce two winners on Monday.
Have a GREAT weekend! Cheers!
Linking up this finish with Crazymomquilts.
UPDATE: I’d planned on announcing winners in a separate post, but I’ve been preoccupied. My nurse here at the hospital randomly picked two numbers for me: 1 and 4. So, yes, I had my baby (who is healthy and adorable!), and I’ll email PDFs of the pattern to commenters 1 and 4 when I get home from the hospital. Thanks!
