Beach Dreams Block 1: Leaping Dolphins

Excitement is building as we get closer to the release of the first block in the NEW BEACH DREAMS block of the month for 2012.

Block 1 will be released on January 15, 2021.


These adorable leaping dolphin are cut out using fusible web and machine appliqued to the simple 2 part background.  And their tails leave an extra fun splash behind them as they leap. 

I saw these two leaping on a bird sight-seeing trip off the Texas shore last winter.  I was so excited to see them out in front of our boat, showing off and playing in the surf.  It is a special memory I will always remember about my time at the beach at Rockport, TX.

Two-piece sea and sky background for the dolphins.

I hope you will take the time between now and the 15th to comb through your stash and pick out just the right fabrics for your quilt.
