I guess if you're going on a boat, it's a good idea to have two anchors. That way, there’s no chance your boat will go drifting off where you don’t want it, when you want it to. So today, I thought I would show you this double anchor quilt block which might help on your sailing trip.
Hi! This is Penny Halgren from QuiltBlockLibrary.com and QuiltBlockLibrary.tv. Thanks for joining me. This looks like a really easy block. And I've got all the pieces cut. So, let’s go over to the sewing table.
This is pretty easy and it just has two different colors of fabric. And I've got it all cut out. So, what I'm going to do is sew these three bars together in the center. And then, we’ll just start adding these triangles as if we were doing a square in a square quilt block. So, I've got these three sewn together. And now, I'm just going to add triangles. The first two I will add are the ones on the sides. Now that that’s done, I’ll just add the triangles on the bottom and then top.
Now, I’ll just add the next set of triangles around the outside. And I’d do this across of each other too. So, I’ll add these two sides, and then I’ll add the other two. I got these two sides sewn on so I’ll just add the top and the bottom and then the block will be finished. This double anchor quilt block is all down and ready for either a quilt or a wall hang. This would make a great gift for a sailor or somebody who likes yachts or boats or just sailing on the ocean blue.
