How to make a quick and easy sailboat quilt starting with any sailboat quilt block. I used fabric remants to make this quick to make quilt!
I based this entire quilt on one foundation paper pieced sailboat block.
Sailboat Quilt Block Pattern
I purchased the pattern on Etsy from Ink Torrents who don’t seem to sell on Etsy any more but you could start your sailboat quilt with any sailboat blocks really.
I can’t give you exact yardage measurements for this quilt but basically, I had bought a bundle of someone else’s leftover blue and navy fabrics on ebay.
I used the blue waves fabric for the sea and the bird fabric for the sky and I added a pop of red for the bottom of the boat itself.
Building the Quilt around one Quilt Block
Once the FPP block was finished I measured the size of the finished block. I think it was around 12″ plus the seam allowance.
Next I measured how much of the block had the ‘water’ in it and how much had the ‘sky’. I then pieced strips to either side of the block that were approximately 2/3rds sky and 1/3rd water.
