Mermaids, Part 1

Had a lot of fun making these mermaid quilts for my upcoming art show this Saturday. I tried a new method of fusing all the parts down at one time and then doing all of the quilting in one go. It works well for small pieces, especially if I'm working on a deadline.

Mermaid Combs Her Hair

 "Mermaid Combs Her Hair" 11" x 12" Machine appliqued cotton, polyester batting.

  Mermaid Friends 

"Mermaid Friends" 10" x 15" Machine-appliqued cotton, polyester batting. I am really, really happy with the quilting on the background on this one. The spirals were so much fun!
