Making a splash!

Before getting too far into my red quilt, I wanted to clear out a couple of smaller projects that have been bouncing around inside my head for a while.

The first is a baby quilt from some mermaid fabric I got at Walmart ages ago.

It was just a five-piece fat quarter bundle. I picked up the pink coral fabric on sale for the back last year. And the mottled blue/green is leftover from a quilt back from who knows when (I’m pretty sure it was one of Mom’s quilts).

I didn’t actually know what kind of pattern I wanted to do, so I set everything out on the bed (a comfortable place to brainstorm), and got out my graph paper.

Unsurprisingly, I had some help from the usual quilting crew.

The mermaid print was pretty spread out, so I didn’t want it cut it too small and lose all those pretty mer-creatures. I decided to go with 12″ star blocks (six inch centre). I’m probably going to put it together with cronerstar sashing, but by the time I got the big stars together, it was too late to start on that.

It will have to wait for another day.
