Finish It Up Friday: Mermaid Penny Patch

I did end up getting the Mermaid Penny Patch quilt top finished for the quilt along over at Stitched in Color.  I pretty much worked until my eyes did not want to stay open, but I got it done.  The quilt was by no means difficult, however I did grossly under estimate how long it would take me to piece the top together.  Below is an image with flash.
Below is a photo of the quilt outside (the colors are a bit better), however it was really windy as you can see at the bottom of the quilt!
And then below is just a slight close up of some of the prints...the Heather Ross mermaid print was the inspiration here of course.

  1. I love this pattern, and yours turned out so well.

  2. The colours in this are so pretty ; ) That's a lot of piecing too. Thanks for your comment over on my blog too. You came up as no reply. Did you know?

  3. I think you did a great job matching the colors from the mermaid print. you must have been saving that one for a while. =) it looks great in the outdoor lighting.

  4. Your fabric ist really nice and it fits perfectly together. I really like how your quilt turned out :D

  5. This is a color combination I would not think of . . . but I love it!

  6. Beautiful, beautiful! What a nice way to showcase that print. I LOVE IT!
