What You'll Get+-

Make a cuddly quilt full of colorful sea creatures swimming through dreamy blue waters.

I designed these sea creatures as a companion to the Fish Quilt. The base blocks are the same size, you you can mix and match to fill a quilt with colorful ocean creatures!

YOU'LL GET. . .

  • A digital pattern delivered by email. (If you're not sure what a PDF pattern is, you'll find more info here.)
  • Patterns for eleven different sea creatures, plus 3 different seaweed patterns.
  • Full sized applique patterns so there’s no enlarging needed
  • Reversed and exploded appliqué patterns to print directly onto fusible adhesive. No tracing! 
  • Detailed instructions and lots of step by step photos – you’ll never feel lost or wonder if you’re doing it right.
  • Detailed cutting instructions for crib, nap and twin sized quilts.
  • Instructions for assembling the quilt – layering, basting, quilting and binding – with links to videos for all of them - including links to Quilt As You Go videos.
  • Links to videos teaching you all the skills you’ll need to complete the project. It’s a workshop disguised as a pattern!

    SIZE

    The blocks will finish at 10" square. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the following sizes. . .

    • crib (50" square)
    • napping (50" x 60") - this is my favorite size for on the couch
    • twin (70" x 90")

      DIFFICULTY

      Easy! It’s great for beginners, and a fun and relaxing project for more experienced stitchers. If you can use your sewing machine, you have the skills you need to make this fun fish quilt.

      I used appliqué with fusible adhesive and Quilt As You Go to make a super easy quilt - almost all done on the machine. The pattern also includes links to videos teaching needle turn appliqué and machine appliqué with freezer paper, in case you prefer those methods.

      What You Need+-

      I used fabric from three different bundles for this quilt.

      YOU'LL NEED. . . 

      Crib Size (50" square)

      • 3 yards total of blue background fabrics
      • assorted prints in sea creature colors (get at least 6 fat quarters, but you’ll probably want more for variety)
      • 2 1/2 yards for backing (or 1 1/2 yards Cuddle Fleece)
      • 1/2 yard for binding

      Napping Size (50" x 60")

      • 3 1/3 yards total of blue background fabrics
      • assorted prints in sea creature colors (get at least 8 fat quarters, but you’ll probably want more for variety)
      • 4 yards for backing (or 2 yards Cuddle Fleece)
      • 1/2 yard for binding

      Twin Size (70" x 90")

      • 7 yards total of blue background fabrics
      • assorted prints in sea creature colors (get at least 16 fat quarters, but you’ll probably want more for variety)
      • 5 yards for backing (or 4 yards Cuddle Fleece)
      • 5/8 yard for binding

        Other Materials

        • batting (I love Warm & Natural 100% cotton batting)
        • fusible adhesive (if using my favorite appliqué with fusible adhesive technique) - I recommend Lite for quilts and Featherlite for clothing
        • rickrack for jellyfish tentacles

        YOU MIGHT ALSO WANT. . .

        • freezer paper (if you choose the machine appliqué with freezer paper technique) – either a roll from the grocery store, or this printable freezer paper

        My Second SHW Quilt

        I made the Woodland Critters for my first grandson and this one for his brother. I find the instructions and videos extremely helpful - and the quilts are so much fun to make!

        Yet again another wonderful pattern. Clearly explained with the added bonus of video links. Easy to follow even for a relative novice like me. Would so love it if you could gain reward type of bonus points for each pattern you buy so that you can get a discount. I’d buy even more then!
