Today is my stop on the Island Batik A Piece Of... Blog Hop. I'm sharing my Mermaid Cove lap quilt.

 

I took this opportunity to make an All About Angles quilt with wider starting units. I enjoy teaching this class and every time I teach it I have more ideas for variations. A giant thank you to my students for inspiring me!

The quilt is approximately 65" x 75" and it was quilting by Tami Levin of The Quilted Lemon with Hobbs 80/20 batting. I chose the Modern Pebbles pantograph because I liked the wavy pattern and the pebbles reminded me of bubbles.

My backing features the remnant of the peach spotted fabric with some Batter from the Batik Foundation Neutrals.

The binding is a combination of a 12-foot binding remnant from this quilt and the dark multi-color mermaid fabric. You can read all the details of my machine binding technique in Machine Mind Your Quilts Like a Pro.
