This block is for a quilt a friend of mine is putting together for one of our church leaders who has cancer. She said the theme was sea and something and the colors were blue and white.
I had a really hard time with using only two colors. This boat was only suppose to have the bottom right three triangles. Then there was water below the boat. At first I was going to have the sky light blue and the water dark blue. But that left the ship to being white. The sails would look good white, but what color would the ship be?
I couldn't think that hard. So I made the background white. With a white background, the ship's sail can't be white. Oh my! So this is what I ended up with. I like it, but it made me think way to hard on a Friday!
