I remembered that I was going to group the "boats" by color and print, which I think looks really cool in mass. Somehow when I got to sewing, I only grouped by color. Still cool, but much more scattered and patchworky and less deliberate feeling. I was fond of the deliberate this time.
I'm going to keep going, but I might have to make two quilts now because the original idea is kind of a nag. Maybe nagging in a good way though.
