Neptune and the Mermaid

Seaside Wonder in Fabric!!

When I first saw the Neptune and the Mermaid online over at Free Spirit this spring, I thought it was interesting but wasn’t quite sure about it. Then I saw it in person at Quilt Market and became obsessed with it!  I finally picked some up at the Fat Quarter Shop this summer and started playing with it a few days ago.

What fun stuff, right??  Giant flowers and Goldfish and Beach Ball like discs!

Divers, mermaids, and bathing fashionistas! Fantastic!! The Border fabrics above and below though? I don’t think I can bear cutting into them……because they are BEYOND Fantastic and both scream tablecloth or tablerunner, don’t they??

So First on my list to do with this line – making a Painted Forest Tree for my All Free Spirit Painted Forest quilt that I am working on!

I love how the diver guys look like they are swinging on the branches!!

And of COURSE Treat bags!

You know how I cannot resist making these treat bags designed by my friend the Happy Zombie!!

Relive your summer fun!!

So yes, I recommend that you run and get this gorgeous fabric while you still can!!  So much joyful color and exuberance in this line! I am thinking I may need to go buy a bunch of that border fabric for kitchen curtains…..

And I bet you could even work some pumpkins in with this stuff! I know I would!

Keep Sewing, Keep Happy!

    The octopus in that line was my favorite fabric of the summer!! I still haven’t cut into it though. I’m waiting for the perfect project. I had to re-order that one

    I’m making a bag out of it… mermaids on one side, floater and diver on the other side. Which side shall I carry it on? Oh dear
