3D Sailboat

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo 3D Sailboat Quilt Link to website or photo www.craftsy.com/pattern/quilting/Other/3D-Sailboat-Quilt-Paper-Pieced/1918 What are you most proud of? That I stayed with it for three days and finally figured out how to make it work. I have made two of them and everyone who sees them really loves them. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't use the horizontal looking sky fabric, get a mottled all-over and let it just suggest sky. If you do use sky like I did, you will have to cut the pieces to each side of the boat at a 60 degree angle.

Q&A with gurlfriday

gobigredh508335 asked:
So sorry to learn the pattern is no longer available. I love it! Is just the flag on top 3-dimensional??
gurlfriday answered:
The sails are also 3-D. I hadn't made the block in about 1-1/2 years when I wrote up the pattern instructions. When I attempted to make another one, I realized how much more information I needed to include in the instructions. Sorry about that, but I do hope to have it corrected and on sale again soon.
