Under the Sea II



A name so nice, I used it twice. I had a lot of leftover Mendocino after making the first Under the Sea quilt, my sister-in-law Emmalyn is a mermaid fan, so I decided to make a quilt out of it for her for Christmas. I got it to her on the 23rd of January, so less than a month late! The finished quilt is about twin-sized. Each block is about 18 inches square, and the sashing 3 inches wide.




The blocks are mostly Mendocino, with a bit of Neptune mixed in. Of course, in my original purchase I had only had 11 mermaid prints, I didn't have the aqua one, so I had to order it. And I could only get it in a pack of 10 squares. So, I used a lot of them on the back, along with some Midwest Modern 2.




Of course, Rocky was helpful as always
