Quiltmaker 100 Blocks – vol 5!

Today I’m happy to share that I have a block in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks – Volume 5!

You’ve got to look for me in there…I’m all the way near the end.  lol  But I’m in there! #92 or 94 or something.

I broke into my Mendocino stash to create this pretty mermaid block paired with some Farmdale Blossoms and a Riley Blake dot. Oh I just love all of these fabrics together!! I really tried to get the mermaids to have some movement and feel like they were swimming in the strips.

The fabrics are the showcase in the block I put in the magazine, but I simplified the look by evening out the borders and creating each block in a just two tones.

The technique to make the blocks is just the same as the one show in Quiltmaker…but even easier with only the one print to worry about. And I LOVE the secondary pattern that shows up when you pair multiple blocks together. I have about 6 or so of these blocks made and I need to make more! This is a quilt that needs to happen in my world.

Patterns that read as solid like or monochromatic are perfect this kind of layout. Just solids would be amazing too. You get a great texture from the seams but it is still simple and very usable. Mitered and on pointe?! Perfect!  Oh and this geometric pattern is very male friendly.  I know we are all always on the lookout for a pattern the men in our lives would like….errr…tolerate….err…love!

  1. I love your block. I'm definitely looking forward to Lucy's Crab Shack & Mama Said Sew by Sweetwater and Marmalade by Bonnie & Camille.

  2. Lovely blocks and workmanship!
    thanks so much for a chance to win volume #5

    Happy Sewing and continued success to you :0)

  3. I'm really enjoying Reunion right now and working on a twin quilt for my 8yo son. It's the perfect boy fabric without being too youngish.

  4. Just came upon this!! Love the block! But cannot find the magazine. Where would I find the pattern for the block?
    Thanks Susan

  5. I love this block; especially the secondary pattern that looks like X’s and O’s (hugs and kisses)! I’ve tried to order the quilt book it’s published in, but can’t find it bc the edition is from several years ago. Is there anywhere I can find instructions for this block? Thanks!

  6. I’d also love to find the instructions for the block! I found the image of the ‘solids’ version on Pinterest and can’t get it out of my head, but baby brain is keeping me from figuring out how to do it myself…help?

  7. I’d love to get the instructions for the second block (two tone). I think it would be a great idea for scraps! Is there any way I can buy the design for just the 1 block?
