A Quilt Along, My Life

1-A-Day, 3″ Blocks — Sail Boat

  Sail Boat Block

Today we’ll make this cutie.

I had fun going through my Thimbleberries yardage today!



  • 3 cream recs. 1  1/2″ x 2  1/2″
  • 2 cream sqs. 1  1/2″
  • 1 black rec. 1  1/2″ x 3 1/2″
  • 2 pink sqs. 1  1/2″

I used my “Lazy Susan” technique for both

the half flying geese units & the bottom of the boat.

 Using my new Creative Grids

“I Love My Quilting Friends”

2 1/2″ x 6″ ruler (available on my website)

I noticed that I can slide it anywhere along the dashed line

to make the cut without a number obstructing my view.

Not that it’s a huge deal but I noticed.

Make 2 half flying geese units.

I pressed these seams open.

I also remembered how handy the

4 1/2″ Creative Grids ruler

is for cutting off both corners of a unit

that I can trim at once

when the squares do not overlap each other :)

(but not until the 3rd block lol).

I pressed these seams open too.

Arrange the pieces then assemble the block.

Cute, huh?

Make a couple more!

Show us your blocks at my Sewing With Susan FB Group.

We want to see your progress too!


Just Keep Sewing…
