Pattern Details

Sailors had swallow tattoos as a symbol of HOPE. When they saw swallows out at sea they knew that they were close to land, and that their treacherous journey was nearing an end, and reaching their destination safely was imminent. When designing this block I wished for this same hope & safety for all those around the world that have recently become displaced by war and politics, that are on treacherous journeys to try and find a safe place to live for their families. With all the craziness going on in the world at the moment it's easy to lose hope. This block is a reminder that we can give others hope by being kind and respectful to them. LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE (Note no Y-seams on this one, but some tiny piecing and tricky angles.) SIZE: 20" x 15" with borders. (10" x 16" without.) This is an instant download PDF pattern for paper-piecing / quilting. See more colour samples on Instagram: This is the 3rd block in my #TattooQuilt in progress. (1 / month in 2017.
