come sail away

Remember the cute sailor duck stamped-for-embroidery quilt block I showed you last summer? I finally got around to embroidering the block and what inspired me to complete it was this extremely cute sailing-themed fabric I found at JoAnn Fabrics last week.

Isn't it perfect? For my color choices I picked up ones from the fabric and this worked up so quickly I could hardly believe it.

Still need to finish the anchor!

I'll probably combine this with another contrasting fabric—not sure what yet— and make a boy-themed pillow for one of the shops I sell at. And I think I have another block around here somewhere so I can make two pillows!

Ahoy, matey!
