Mermaid quilt


I started it back in March or April as part of the quilt along.




And I finally finished it about a week ago.




I like it and can be found underneath it almost every night. 


When I'm home.  Which seems like never lately.

And, thank you again for your quilt making tutorials. I referenced your binding instructions again yesterday, and easily finished up another quilt project!

Oh it is so beautiful! I'm still trying to figure out how to use my Mendocino. It's such an awesome line and it looks perfect in your quilt!

Dana! I love it! Pinwheels are to me what Ohio stars are to you. I really need to make one of these. Are these the same size as your other pinwheel quilt? So cute.

Mette said...

It's beautiful!

Lara said...

I actually think this quilt would look better on me. Tehehehe! Just joking. It's gorgeous though Dana. Love the layout of the blocks.

Catherine said...

Oh this is just lovely! I have some of these fabrics and am not quite sure what to do with them. Very inspiring, thank you.

Mary said...

I love this! Pinwheel is such a fun pattern...and yours is just fabulous.

Leila said...

I'm loving pinwheels at the moment! Just finished my own pinwheel quilt wich I'm snuggled up under on the couch almost every night.

mamaacorn said...

It's gorgeous! Makes me want to make a pinwheel quilt now.

Elissa said...

every bit as dreamy as i knew it would be. no picture of the back? your backs are always as cool as the front.....

Sarah Pead said...

It's beautiful! And it's so your style. Heather Ross would be so proud. I love seeing how people use her fabrics so differently. I feel like it would be a perfect picnic blanket or, like you said, a perfect under the covers cuddle blanket.

Beautiful work as always, dear friend.

Amy said...

It's beautiful Dana! The colors are amazing and I love how you have two clusters of the same color of pinwheels, I love it!

Renna said...

It's positively beautiful, Dana, something which I'm sure makes you smile each time you look at it. :-)
