Surf and Sand - Netherlands Block
My kids each spent time in the Netherlands when they were in college. In their honor, I did the pattern "Netherlands" out of Carol Doak's Mariner's Compass Stars book. I think it turned out pretty well.
Here is the pattern from the book if you'd like to compare:
We got over 6.5 inches of rain out of Hurricane Hannah! We had a little wind but mostly it was just rain. The girls came in from doing their business looking like skinny wet rats. Evelyn, in particular, looked miffed at the inconvenience. I woke up with a terrible headache - perhaps due to the low pressure system - and ended up sleeping off the benadryl from mid morning to mid afternoon so I missed most of the rain. We went out to eat Mexican food this afternoon and when we got back, I goofed off then started on this block. It took a little time - not one that went together as easy as some but it really wasn't difficult. Just tricky.
Here are all the blocks for this project, to date!:
