Sun, Sand, and Sea BOM 2017 - Block 7

The August block for the Sun, Sand, and Sea BOM was "Mr. Crabby", designed by Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy.

Isn't he adorable?! Every month, I find myself in awe of the creativity shared for this BOM.

On September 1st, I shared this photo with the fabrics I planned to use. After cutting the fabrics and setting the pieces in place, I was not happy with the red/yellow/orange fabric. So, I used a cloud fabric instead.

The other fabric choices were based upon the colors used in the pattern. After I pieced the block, I realized I have yellow and green fabrics touching on a quilt with an Oregon State University theme. An OSU fan in my life declared this block might spontaneously burst into flames as a result. I laughed. (Yellow and green are University of Oregon colors and the two teams are rivals. Please do not tell the OSU fans in my life that I cheer both teams on...) 

Here is how all of the blocks look together. 

Now to see if I can finish "Beach Boy Freddie", the fun flamingo designed by Carol of Just Let Me Quilt, before October 1st.

This is great! I love all the details. said...

I already mentioned it but I love your crab, the fabric you used for his shell is awesome. LOL U of O and OSU. Being an Oregon girl transplanted to the midwest. My ex husband is a dyed in the wool U of M fan. We still message each other about football standings. Ducks vs Wolverines.

It IS a great design! Your block colors are great, college fans notwithstanding. I'm so glad you showed them all together, because it is easy to see how great this is going to be as a quilt.

I am in total awe with this quilt! I think every block just gets cuter and cuter (and Freddie is beyond adorable!!!). If I were a sane quilter, I'd be trying to make this one.
