The theme this year is triangles and squares. Knowing that while sometimes cruel the ocean is so important to the Japanese, I hand pieced this 9 inch Sailboats block using this pattern. It was my first attempt at half square triangles and I`m pleased with the points. In fact over all, I`m pleased. Now to get it to Japan!
Edited to add This block won`t be going to Japan after all as I realize that once the seam allowance is taken into account, it will knock the tips off the triangles. Off to have a think.
