Scrappy Jellyfish Quilt Block - Seaside Adventure Row Along

It is finally my turn on the Seaside Adventure Row Along!  I'm so excited to share this scrappy jellyfish quilt block with you all.  It will knock your scraps down in a flash!  It also allows you a lot of creativity to make these jellyfish your own.  I love digging into my fabric scraps and remembering the projects that they came from and where those projects went.

Now if scrappy isn't your thing you don't have to make this jellyfish scrappy you can use single pieces of fabric.  A fat quarter of each color should be enough.  This is a huge block 30x30, if that's too big for your project you can just make 1/4 of the overall block.

Making A Scrappy Jellyfish Quilt Block

In the pattern you'll notice mention of spinning seams.  I do this with every seam possible when I sew it is such common place thing for me that I assume all quilters know how to do this.  I was reminded recently that not everyone does this or knows how to do it so I made a little video showing you how to spin seams.  It is really easy to do and it will make a huge difference in your finished quilts.

Now let's make the block!  This video is longer than I normally do, it is around 15 minutes long.  We don't do applique here so I wanted to make sure I covered EVERYTHING!  The technique for the applique is what I call faux-needle turn.  It is a technique I picked up doing a block of the month from Quilt in a Day.  

That's it!  You just need to repeat that process with your other three colorways.
