Tidal Pool Tutorial

Hello everyone!

This past week I, along with 75 of my closest friends, had an opportunity to test a new pattern for Mollie Sparkles called Tidal Pool. It's a really cool block and I love the variations I've seen in sea colors, but I decided to use fabrics that would match the bee quilt I've been trying to finish forever. It goes together pretty quickly if you use non-directional fabric - whoops!
Tidal Pool Block
Fabrics:
1. Lizzy House, 1001 Peeps in Jewel Purple
2. Clippings in Spackle from the Paint Collection by Carrie Bloomston

He has also made a variation of the block here. I think it would be fun to use a text print and have the "leaking" color in white and then go to a solid grey background. Maybe I'll do that for my next try!

I think 25 bee blocks is finally enough to sew this quilt together! It has been in progress for at least 3 years. To sash or not to sash...

  1. Oooh, that Tidal Pool block looks right at home in your bee quilt! I feel honoured that I helped you finish off a three year old project. Thank you for letting me be a part of that. Now get that thing sewn up, and I vote, "no sash!" Kisses!
