This is the fourth pattern for this season, Fin and Dandy – with kudos to Megan, The Bitchy Stitcher, for her help with finding the perfect name for it!
Two quilt sizes are included – a twin at 60” x 80” and a baby quilt at 36” x 48” – and of course, you can customize to fit. Grab a copy here.
I designed a more complicated version of this block almost 20 years ago in a paper-pieced layout for a guild’s block-of-the-month challenge. When it surfaced out of my archives recently, I decided to dust it off and make it easy to do without paper. I had a LOT of fun playing with prairie points as fins. It can be made from yardage, or a package of 10” squares plus background.
Several Stunt Sewists dipped their toes into the water on this one (thank you, ladies!): Terry, Janet, Adva, Caz – and Monica and Brittany, who bravely joined me in the pre-market insanity of cranking one out quickly for Hoffman Fabrics*. We used some of the newest tone-on-tone batiks, and their newest hand-dyed Indah line (Indah means “beauty” in Bali) – they’ll be out in August, and trust me, you want some!
* I have a great professional relationship with Hoffman!
