Fabrics Used: Riley Blake + on hand stash
Ugh…the dreaded y-seams! I thought we were done with these when we made the Jewel block, but they made a return here. I have to say…while I’m getting better, I’m still far from feeling confident in creating y-seams and am giving myself 50% on this block (as in 50% of them came out nice, the other 50% not so much).
Color-wise, I really like this block! The use of just three tones gives the block a really nice, clean feel. I even fussy cut mermaids that had a minimal colorway to them…you’ll notice they really don’t have any added tones beyond those found in the background and accent fabrics.
Now if I could just master those y-seams…
Happy Farmer’s Tuesday! Here are the completed blocks in the Under the Sea for Me Quilt. I hope they inspire you as you make yours!
