Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside...

I've been chatting to my lovely friend, Jackie (you can chat with her too, on Instagram, she's @jacki_nash ) about her wonderful, customised Cornish version of To Skye. She has spent many happy holidays in Cornwall and wanted to add a Dinghy block from Make Sail - the blocks are the same size - and turn the Scottish Tystie into a Cornish Seagull. Easily achieved, just by changing the fabric placement.

So when I came to make a sample quilt of To Skye for my Festival of Quilts stand, I just had to include a Seagull...and I thought you might like to do the same, so here's how...

You will need to make the following alterations to the To Skye pattern:-


OMIT the scrap of black fabric and choose a slightly bigger 2½” x 8" scrap of yellow fabric, rather than the red listed in the pattern.
