Sailing School

Assembling this easy whimsical sailboat quilt is as fun as a day at the seaside. Blocks and rows come together without the need to match any seams. Wave blocks are strip pieced for quick assembly. The sailboat blocks use stitch and flip techniques for the boat hull and for the half rectangle sail units. Sail units are intentionally oversized then trimmed down to size for a perfect fit every time. A paper trimming template to pair with a standard quilting ruler is included. 

Finished quilt measures 50 1/2" x 67".

To use directional fabrics in the sails, as shown above  in Michael Miller Fabrics' Vitamin Sea collection,  you will need extra fabric and alternate cutting instructions.  Download the details here.
