Texas has always loved originality —

My darling husband has always loved boats of all kinds, but especially sailboats, and recently he has become interested in an event called the Texas 200. The event, which runs 200 miles along the coast of our great state, is sailed primarily in home-made boats. Participants are discussing making boats to resemble the Texas scow — a workhorse of a sailing vessel that served well in the shallow and unpredictable waters in question. What I would like to make, of course, is a quilt that resembles the Texas scow — and I think the schooner version was cuter than the sloop version. I found this block, called “Tall Ship”, and I think it might do nicely.
