do.Good Boats

I went to the doctor on Friday for a routine baby check up and things are under way. Even though I'm not due until February 18th, I could go at any time! So I wanted to get my 'commitment' sewing out of the way this weekend so I don't have to worry about it.

We had a couple people leave our Bliss group at do.Good Stitches and some new join in. One of which i our Bee Mama Chris who assigned our February blocks. We are doing boat blocks of our choosing. The only requirements are the unfinished size at 10.5 inches and the background fabric of white. She requested a patchwork sail if possible. Our inspirations were this and this.

This was totally out of my comfort zone to just make up something. So for my first block I found a paper piecing pattern for a boat here. And then used a blanket stitch in aqua on my machine to attach it to the 10.5 inch block.


I decided the second one should be totally different since I guess all the blocks will be different! So I totally made the second one up as I went along. 


I'm pretty happy with how it turned out (despite the blurry photo!). I hope you like them Chris!! I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with.

Cute! I bet the quilt will be very colorful, with a pretty open palette!

I've got my fingers crossed for a baby to show up soon!
