There are going to be a more than a few colouring sessions with this paper piecing. This was one complicated block!
I procrastinated on choosing the background colour...
Thank goodness for my trusty Kona swatches. The original calls for Prussian. After seeing all the variation that came out of Technicolor Galaxy when other quilters went their own way, I just didn't want to follow the pattern. I thought Celestial would be cool, but it was just too close to Prussian. And Social Media Goddess is using Caribbean. Breakers it is!
For my mermaids, I decided to go with hair colours similar to DT - a ginger and a blond!
Isn't it amazing what some well placed cutting can do? There really aren't that many dots on that print!
I'm linking up today with Let's Bee Social @ Sew Fresh Quilts. Pop on over and see what others are up to this week!
