Magical Half Squares - Mermaid Cove Block of the Month
Mermaid Cove batik colorway takes us back to the 1980's, with it's flamboyant peaches, turquoise, and even a hint of dark lavenders. It really is a very relaxing laid back color combination. The background is a "PFD" batik white meaning it is prepared for dye and it is very thin feeling since it does not have any dye or wax in the fabric.
This “Block of the Month” is really quick and easy. Every month you will receive 40 PRE-CUT Half Squares of a Print and a Background. So at the end of 12 months you will have 480 complete units. Now for the fun part picking out a design layout. Everyone of these layouts is 20 squares across and 24 rows down. So in our case we are using a 3” Finished square so that means your quilt will be 60”x72” a nice size throw.
We will include a picture in black/white so you can see all the different layouts. They will be
Barn Raising (that’s the one that looks like it is growing from the center out) Optical X, Slanted Diamonds, Pinwheels, Boxed In, Inversion. (Check out other colorways to see different layouts)
