Good Morning, Quilters!
The Mystery Quilt is no longer a mystery…it is a Sailboat Sampler!
Today we add the Sailboats and the Clouds and next week we add some finishing touches.
Let’s jump right in!
Let’s remark the lines–
Draw a line 1-1/4 inches above the top of the Scallops.
Draw another line 3/4 inch below The Paperclips.
Divide the large Row into four rectangles using the no-measure method we used last week.
Finally, add a line down the center of each of the rectangles–this will be the line for the Sailboat masts.
Stitch straight up the mast. Add a small triangle flag.
Stitch a large triangle sail.
Stitch a curved line to create the left side of the sail. Then echo stitch the mast to the top.
Add two more triangles (or one large one) on the left side of the mast.
Stitch down and then create the front of the ship.
Stitch forward and create a small curl.
Stitch a wavy line to create the bottom of the boat.
Continue stitching all four Sailboats.
To add the Clouds…
Begin stitching just above the Sail on the first Sailboat.
Stitch scallops around the boat.
Connect the Clouds between each rectangle.
Echo stitch the entire row to add more emphasis to this line.
Wasn’t that easy!? One Row at a time…Minutes per week…Slow and Steady!
Next week–the finishing touches!
Sailing, Sailing Away….
