I'm freaking out! I finished up the last of the mermaid blocks this afternoon and was finally able to lay them all out together! It is just how I imagined they'd look together! This is my absolute dream quilt and I am so excited about finally getting close to the finish line!
The blocks are scrappy pieced log cabins centering around the mermaid prints from Heather Ross's Mendocino line. My very favorite fabrics! The blocks use a lot of coordinating prints from the line, but also tons of fabrics collected and pulled from my stash. I'm getting ready now to put the top together, which will take a bit, since the blocks are all different sizes! I plan on having this quilt long arm quilted, since it's going to be giant at 96"x108"! :)
You can see all the blocks here. I finished the first block for this quilt in January 2011, so it's been over a year in progress! I'm positively bursting with excitement over this quilt, I couldn't wait until tomorrow to share! :)
