Quilt-as-you-go blocks are addictive. Anything to avoid Christmas shopping, right?
Last week, I made four plane blocks. This week, I made four boats, or are they yachts? I am sure a proper sailor would have a fit with my improper sail shapes. You call that a mainsail? My fabulous sailor friends who have competed in the Fastnet Race would not be impressed with my lack of yacht designing skills!
This project has made a large dent in my blue stash, but I am going to try to resist temptation and not restock. Let’s see how long that resolve lasts. Perhaps about as long as my I-will-not-start-new-projects resolve, which faltered last night when I found myself cutting fabric for a new baby quilt idea.
Of course, after all these boats, I now have Rod Stewart’s ‘Sailing’ buzzing about in my head as an earworm. Oh well. It could be worse; the earworm could be Enya’s ‘Orinoco flow’!
