Week 7 Seaside Adventure Row Along

We are coming close to the end of our row along adventure.  We have this week and next week for new patterns.  I hope that you have enjoyed our time together as much as I have.  I know I've learned so much from the other designers that participated in the row along plus I've met so many great quilters along the way.  So while I'm sad our time is winding down I know that you want this week's patterns so let's get to it.  

This post may contain affiliate links.  Purchasing items from the links cost you nothing more and adds a few pennies to the fabric budget.

If you are new here you can see all the Seaside Adventure Rows here.  Each week another group of designers will be featured.  The rows are free the week they debut but after that week designers may charge for their rows.  If you don't want to miss out on any of the blocks be sure to sign up for the email blast so you know when the next week goes live.

This week we are heading to Heleen Pinkster Quilt Designer and Cheryl Laplante.

We are starting off by heading over to Heleen Pinster Quilt Designer.  This sunset is so pretty!  I can just smell the ocean looking at this block.  Be sure to follow Heleen on Instagram  @heleen_pinkster_quilt_design and use the hashtag #heleen_pinkster_quilt_design so she can see your version of the block.

Our last stop this week is with Cheryl Laplante.  Cheryl doesn't have a blog so I'm hosting her pattern in my shop.  I do have a little bit from Cheryl for the block 

Hi.  I hope you are enjoying this year’s Row Along.  I have been involved with the Row Along for 5 of the last 7 years.  I would like to thank Melissa Shields for continuing Marian Pena’s dream of sharing our blocks and for posting my Row Along on her blog.  I would also like to thank Northcott Fabric for donating their fabric for us to use in our block.  

My 12 yr old grandson, Colby, and I both came up with the same name for my block…Under The Sea.

I wanted to design a hand applique block; however, the pieces in this block are too tiny and have tight curves, so it is best to machine applique.

HINTS:  I used Steam-A-Seam 2 to fuse on the back of my fabric pieces.  I love this product as it will stick to the fabric so it can be repositioned before fusing.  The background block is cut at 14” as the applique will draw it up a big and I love a bit extra just for handling the block.  On my block, I use a PIGMA Pen to draw on the eyes. You can also use it to draw on the Jelly Fish legs or do a thicker machine stitch.  As my block is just going to be a wall hanging, I used a 6 strand of embroidery floss.  I knotted one end, then cut the length with the unknotted edge under the fused fabric.  I then rearranged the legs and used monofilament thread to run a few lines across the legs.  I also tilted my jellyfish a bit as you can see in my final block.

Don't forget to share this post with your quilty friends!
