Description

"Always be yourself. Unless you can be a mermaid. Then always be a mermaid." - Internet wisdom

I designed this pattern so that if you've had a bad day, you can go home, lay under your quilt and just be a mermaid instead.

This pattern is suitable for confident beginners with some sewing experience all the way up to expert quilters. The blocks are a combination of regular patchwork squares (just cut and they're ready, yay!) and half square triangles (one seam and they're ready, yay!), which makes for a quick, easy quilt top. I've included detailed instructions with lots of construction photos. This pattern is just for the creation of the 70" square quilt top and does not include information beyond assembly of the quilt top.

A half and quarter square ruler is highly recommended, but not absolutely required for the half square triangles in this pattern.

Fat quarters OR 1/4 yard cuts will work for this pattern. (I love fat quarter bundles, but sometimes it's easier to buy individual 1/4 yard cuts from retailers.) If you have a lot of scraps, they may also be used. If you use the quantities listed in pattern, fat eighth could be used for the skin and tail portions.

I've included tips on color choices, easy patchwork assembly, and blending colors throughout the quilt so that they're placed just as they should be for the most beautiful results. The techniques may be a little different than you're used to, so read the entire pattern before beginning.

*And just in case it needs to be said -- This listing is for a quilt pattern, not a finished quilt. The pattern is a PDF file delivered instantly through your Etsy account, so you will need a PDF reader to open it.

With special thanks to my beautiful friend and neighbor Christina for being my mermaid model!
