Sun, Sand, and Sea BOM 2017 - Block 9

"Bathing Beauty" is block 9 of the Sun, Sand, and Sea Block of the Month hosted by Sew Incredibly Crazy and Friends.

This block was designed by Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy. You may find her post about it here and the pattern (which is free in October of 2017) may be found on Craftsy, here.

You might have noticed, I have not yet finished Block 8. I had a hard time figuring out how to add "Beach Boy Freddie" to the quilt so it would fit with the color scheme. I was not sure pink would fit in with all of that orange and black. And I was already worried about how stark the green on "Mr. Crabby" stood out.

I think I found fabrics that let Freddie rock the orange and black. And, I worked in more of the green fabric so Mr. Crabby will fit in better. I still need to hand embroider around the applique and piece the border.

This is how the blocks look together right now.

I look forward to seeing what the ladies designing the blocks for this BOM have lined up for us next month!

Wow! Renee seeing all your blocks together, they look FAB!
That swimsuit looks like something Jessica Rabbit would wear, ha ha!

Freddy looks great! Are you making the bottom of the quilt a little darker than the top? So maybe it seems to go from shade to full sun? The blocks look so great together!

Such a bright, fun quilt. Love the bathers and sandals.

Freddie is so rockin' the orange!! I can just imagine a boom box just out of sight and he's about ready to bust some pretty cool dance moves.
