I'm wanting to make a sail boat quilt for a little one. I've done some searches and haven't come up with much. One is for a 12 inch block which seems really large for a childs quilt. I would like maybe a 8" if I can find it. Hollyhock quilts has a cute one I'm considering.
I have fabric and stash and ready to go on this.
Any ideas will be appreciated.
Thanks

I haven't recently seen a sailboat pattern, but I've often drafted my own quilt patterns using graph paper. Start with an 8" square (or 8 1/2 in for seam allowances) and mark off the pattern on the square. Be sure to add seam allowances to all pieces when you actually go to cut your pieces or make templates. It's really very easy.

Do any of these "float your boat"????  If you find something similar to what you have in mind, it would be easier to suggest a pattern source.  The suggestion by Carol above is very cute.

Have you looked on Janet Wickell's quilting section on Ask.com ? She has one -not sure ifit is in the baby quilt section or exactly where it is, but I have seen one there.

Not a quilt pattern, but there is a beautiful Christening gown with sailboats in a back issue of Sew Beatuiful. It was a masculine looking gown, done in shades of blue and white ...absolutely stunning and maybe it could be adapted to a quilt pattern. Does anyone remember this gown? If you're still looking I'll see if I can find it.
