Mermaid quilt started!

I got to spend the weekend with one of my best friends, who happens to be an amazing art quilter, so I was inspired to start working on my mermaid quilt. I drew my mermaid on Saturday, then started to play with different fabrics on Sunday. She is done with fusible web applique and I am pretty happy with the progress so far. My husband told me my original sketch was "comic book" good, which I took as a huge compliment coming from him. You can't see any details yet in the actual quilt, but I am planning to do some thread painting and beading and who knows what else!
This is so different from anything else I have done and I hope I continue to be inspired by this project and will post pictures as I go along.


  1. I love your Mermaid, she's beautiful.

  2. Thanks Robin, I'm glad you like her!
