It's Summer time y'all and I'm so excited to be part of the Summer Block Party hosted by fabric.com.

When I was asked to be part of this shin dig, I knew exactly what I wanted to make - a nautical stripes block in ode to my childhood summer's spent on the South Texas coast, tagging along on fishing trips with my brother and father.

What exactly is the Summer Block Party? Twice a week for the next four weeks, one quilt pattern designer will share his/her summer block. All the blocks are 12″ finished - the perfect size for a pillow, mini wall hanging or quilt! I decided to turn my quilt block into a pillow to compliment my nephew's nautical themed room for his second birthday. The love for the sea runs deep in our family y'all!

This quilt block came together in no time at all and now I'm tempted to turn this into a quilt. The design and color combinations are endless.
