Yep it's that time of year. The wonderful Amy over at Amy's Creative Side is hosting her annual Blogger's Quilt Festival. Which quilt to choose, which one? Hmmm I was reading a blog where the person said the one she finished last was always her new favorite. I feel like that sometimes too. I did have a recent finish of a top but I forgot to take pictures before sending it to the quilter! I digress. I think I am going to share my Mermaid Quilt.
I just love this mini quilt! I promised a mini quilt for a quilt auction and this is what I came up with. I had bought this mermaid pattern many years ago with some others. Now I have no idea where the other mermaids went but I love this one. I may need to go on a mission to find them. I also have no idea who the artist is, if I knew I would just buy more! If anyone else knows maybe you can share it with me! I sent her off to the auction. As it turns out I loved it so much I bought it back! I even quilted this one myself so don't look too closely!
I did all of the embroidery by hand and I really enjoyed doing that. I strip pieced the back too just for a little added interest.
Both of my daughters were swimmers and always pretended to be mermaids when they were small. This kind of reminds me of my girls. I hope you enjoy seeing her too!
