Mermaid Quilt Quilt-along! Week 9

Mermaid-Quilt2

WEEK 9: Seahorse applique block
This week we have the last sea creature to applique! We’re nearly done!
Today is this adorable little seahorse 😀 It’s put together just like the first applique week: print the pattern, trace the outlines, fuse to the fabric, cut the shapes, fuse to the background fabric, and finally sew around the edges.

When you’re done, it should look something like this! Once again, give it a good press the remeasure the block to make sure it’s still 15½” square.
Next week we’re tackling the last mermaid!

Mermaid Quilt Quilt-along! Week 8

WEEK 8: Mermaid applique block #4
Today’s yet another mermaid! I loved drawing the extra details on this little girlie. Instead of the usual fish fin, I gave her a fin that’s more like a shark – and of course the braid is fun too 😀
It’s put together just like the first applique week: print the pattern, trace the outlines, fuse to the fabric, and cut the shapes. I would recommend fusing the cameo frame first (it needs to be shifted up a bit to accommodate the dangling ‘beads’), then fusing the dangly bits below afterwords, then the mermaid at last of course. Then as before, sew around the edges.

Next week we’re back to a simpler shape – the last sea creature! 😀

WEEK 6: Mermaid applique block #3
We’ve got another mermaid today! This one was fun to draw too – the pose is really dynamic and I like how the cameo frame has radial symmetry 😀 It’s put together just like the first week: print the pattern, trace the outlines, fuse to the fabric, cut the shapes, fuse to the background fabric, and finally sew around the edges.

WEEK 4: Mermaid applique block #2
Onto another mermaid today! I loved drawing this little cutie because her pose is so dynamic ^-^ It’s put together just like the others: print the pattern, trace the outlines, fuse to the fabric, and cut the shapes. I would recommend fusing the cameo frame first, then fusing the small round bits above and below afterwords. Lastly you can place the mermaid in the center. Then, as before, sew around the edges.
