It's plain sailing!

Oh boy, time flies when you're enjoying yourself! Can't believe it's a new month, and we're half way through our Skinny Dippin' Quilt along!
This block reminds me of a certain playful minke whale which swam round and round the ferry sailing from the Hebridean islands to the mainland - a real WOW! moment.
Both the whale and boat have been appliqued - sewn onto background cloth (the cloth used in the photo is Coastal "In the Sea" and "White Waves").
For the boat iron-on fusible (Bondaweb) has been used to stick the sails and boat to the background cloth, before machining around the edges. The same technique can be used for the whale too, though if you prefer, the whale can be sewn by hand - anywhere, even while relaxing in the sun.
Time certainly does fly doesn't it! It seems no time since April we were announcing the draw to win a gorgeous Coastal Skinny Quarter bundle, and yesterday 30th June we fished out the winning entry!
And the winner of the Coastal Skinny Quarter bundle, is Claire Manning! Congratulations Claire - I'll be in touch today for your postal details, you're Skinny Quarter bundle will be winging it's way to you shortly!!!!
Also a huge thank you to everyone who joined in, there will be more Giveaway goodies coming very soon.
Till next time, enjoy summertime, stay cool and happy sewing x
