  1. Hi Teresa! I really enjoy your videos! They are inspiring me to include different blocks in my quilts/sewing. What is the name of the fish fabric at the bottom of your sailboat quilt block? It is the perfect scale print for this and some other sailing boat and sea scape prints. Thanks from Bensalem, PA. Tina Ross
