New Quilt – Sea Creatures and 2 Mermaids

IsabellasWhimsy TriangleSea Creatures

Coral Queen of the Sea, quilt #2

Worked this weekend and took pics today as soon as the rain let up. It’s a finish!

This sweet quilt is 36: X 48″ (91.5cm X 122cm), a lovely size for a baby, a little girl, a beach house throw, a recliner or wheelchair lap quilt.  I could go on and on…because I am crazy about this pretty fabric. Coral Queen of the Sea was produced this season by Moda, one of the top fabric makers in the US. All the prints are from this collection. The white and deep teal binding are Kona Cottons, very popular with quilters.

The prints feature several whimsical sea creatures such as whales, dolphins, jellyfish, puffer fish, sea horses, star fish (sea stars), squid, fishies, and the pink / coral triangles have a couple of shy mermaids swimming. The backing is one large piece of the sea creatures fabric.

This sweetie is finished in time to enter the QQQ Etsy Team’s Quilt of the Month Challenge. Entries must be posted by this evening (CST) and then voting begins and goes until the end of the month. The winning quilt will be used by the team through the month of September as our logo on all of our sites across the internet. That gives the winning shop lots of visibility.

If you love it and want to pin it, here’s a pin ready for you: www.pinterest.com/pin/471892867189087726/

I’ve got fabric to make 2 more quilts in different styles…yes, that’s how much I like it!

Thanks for stopping by.

Blessings,

zizzybob’s Linky Party!

zizzybob avatar

Fellow-quilter and QQQ Etsy Team member zizzybob has opened a Linky Party. Don’t know what that is? People who make handcrafted items are invited to post a link to one of their items on a designated page.

zizzybob’s blog is found on Blogger and is called Sweet Little Gems. Here is what she says about this week’s Linky Party:

Linky Party Week 3

Do you have a shop on Etsy, Zibbet, Artfire, Zazzle or maybe your own website? Want some free promotion? Would you like another backlink? Let’s see what you have. Add a link or two and join the party.
The way I read this, you, dear Reader, are welcome to link to this Linky Party if you can answer YES! to her first question above. So come on! Link up for some free promotion and a chance to see other handcrafted items from your fellow crafters.

I’ve been keeping busy with some private orders, so haven’t added to the shop this week. I did renew a Western Baby Burp Cloth and a Hanukkah Baby Bib and Washcloth set. I’m getting ready to renew the Scandi Baby Burp and Bib Gift Set.

I will be adding a Western Baby Bib and Western Baby Snuggly Blanket as soon as I get some good pics. And when I can, I’m planning a Scandi Baby Snuggly and Scandi Baby Quilt.

Meanwhile, plans for this week are to finish up a pretty lap quilt for the shop, start a baby quilt for my October 2016 grandson (!!!), and try to add at least one new item to Isabella’s Whimsy on Etsy as well as prep 2 multi-item Christmas orders.

Please stop by the shop and let me know what you like by clicking on ♥s.

And if you are on Facebook, I’d love for you to stop by Isabella’s Whimsy there too.

Blessings,

Isabella
