As soon as I saw that song in the list of carols we could choose from I knew that was it. First of all, the idea of these ship blocks came to mind right away because I had been working on some sail boat blocks this past summer.
Secondly, when I lived in Vancouver, BC as a child I loved that Christmas carol and would sing it every time I got a glimpse of the ships in the harbour. I remember some of them would put Christmas lights on their masts and sails at Christmas time.

  1. I like your ships. Where I live along the Gulf of Mexico our harbor has a big night where all the boats compete with decorations. Santa rides into the town on the last boat coming into the harbor. (robinsbusiness@hotmail.com)

  2. Your theme is very unique–it is a carol that you don't hear too often. Your row is perfect for the carol. Thanks for the chance to win your terrific book.

  3. I love it, and can see so many ways to use this row! Thanks for the wonderful pattern. Congrats on the new book. I have to say I'm in love with the pumpkin heart! 🙂

  4. Thanks so much for being a part of !the Christmas Carol QAL! Your block is perfect!! Thanks too, for the chance to win a copy of your book – it looks really nice!!!

  5. Anita- I love your pixel hearts patterns- they are all very cool. Would be great fun to create a whole year full of quilts with your designs. Thanks for the chance to win these patterns.
    Warmest regards, Anna

  6. I really like your ships and the block doesn't have to be used for a Christmas quilt, so that's a bonus! I have a tiny string of Christmas lights from the craft store that would make a cute embellishment attached to the yardarms (if this is a wall hanging). Thanks for the pattern!

  7. Love the ships, I have a son in the Navy, I will have to make him something with this design. The heart with the pumpkin is great, and although I am not Canadian, I have roots from there and that heart is wonderful. thanks for designing and sponsoring. Merry Christmas 😉
