My First Tall Sailing Ship ..............

I've just changed my requested block, and my August partner Jo has sent my first sailing ship. The plan is to make a large floor cushion for my sailing grandsons [aged 8 to 13].

I just love it. Thank you so much Jo.
Jo asked for a star block in country colours. The picture shows some points that did not line up, but I did restitch the cross seam and am very pleased with the result. [Should have taken another photo before mailing]

This is the star block I sent to Jo. I hope it goes well in your project.
Happy stitching, Jan
