Mermaid Quilt


I get so many fun opportunities doing custom work! I have worked with Amy several times before and she asked if I could cut up her daughter's mermaid duvet and make it into a quilt. She said finding coordinates wouldn't be a problem~ and she was right! I had so much fun pulling out my stash (as well as adding to it!) to make this twin size quilt. Practically every designer is featured here~ Jennifer Paganelli, Patty Young, Tanya Whelan, Amy Butler, Michael Miller, Robert Kaufman & Heather Ross. The back is Ta Dot in lime and the binding is from Lots of Dots & Stripes from Robert Kaufman. I chose to quilt 1/4" in for each square and then on each mermaid block, I chose a different part to quilt & highlight. Sometimes I outlined the whole mermaid & sometimes it was her hair or flower or a starfish. I loved that the Heather Ross Seahorses matched the theme & colors!
