    Default Nautical alphabet double sided napkins

    A client asked me to make double sided napkins with the nautical alphabet-turns out they are similar to quilt blocks! Interesting to make!

    Very interesting! So each shape stands for a letter? Or how does that work?

    Yes, there are 26 letters, boats can spell out messages through the flags.

    Yes, each one is a letter. You can message back and forth to other boats if you don't have a radio to do so.

    Oh I have had to learn the flags when I sailed and participated in races and regattas.

    The flags also represent a command, which is standard Inall languages. So not necessarily spelling out words, but you can do this as well. Also one flag displayed over another can direct sailors to go ashore because of storm, end of races for the day, racing infractions.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    Absolutely fascinating! And you did a beautiful job on the blocks … I mean, napkins!
