"Learn how to take any sailboat quilt block and turn it into a full quilt with loads of lovely modern negative space! I have a friend who lives by the sea and I knew I wanted to make her a sailboat quilt but I couldn't find a full quilt pattern I liked. So I bought an FPP sailboat block and used it to make a large family sized throw quilt I personally think it is one of the best quilts I've made and it took the least time! About a week from start to finish. I used fabric remnants and leftovers for the water and the sky and I show you how to do it in this tutorial. "
