She's staring out at the stormy sea waiting...
This is a perfect applique pattern to use the unique or shimmery fabric on her tail.
Cut your background fabric to 23”x 23” first. This is the fabric you will put all of the other pieces on top of. Then cut and place the mermaid, rocks and water on top of the dark gray.
Once your applique pieces are fused to the background, stitch with a straight stitch around each piece with matching thread.
Trim to square, then add a 2” border.
Add batting and backing and quilt as desired.
