Sun, Sand, and Sea BOM...Block #6

The Sun, Sand, and Sea BOM block is actually a border for Block #5.
Carla at Creatin In The Sticks designed the cutest border of fish.
Her pattern is for paper piecing, but she added an applique pattern for those who'd rather
not paper piece. I love to paper piece, but I went for applique on these adorable fish.

Photographing just the row was a bit hard and not very exciting.

But when I added the middle block...I love it!

Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy is in charge of this BOM
and she has monthly giveaways. Don't miss out on any of them!
All you have to do is link up your block to be eligible.

The patterns are free the first month they are released, but after that they 
will be available for a nominal fee from each designer.

 I use Therm O Web's Heat n Bond EZ Print Lite sheets to prepare 
my applique pieces. I love that all I need to do is run the design through
 my printer, iron it to the wrong side of my fabric, cut out the pieces, 
and then press them in place. It is so fast and easy...I love easy! 

I'm using Riley Blake Designs Crayola Colors for my blocks.
They are so beautiful!


  1. That block is so darn cute and that border is making the block as a whole cuter than cute! All the blocks are great summer fun!

  2. Those little fish look so cute around the block.

  3. I love the fishy triangle border!! It's so perfect. Those solid colors are perfection. How do you think the Riley fabric compares to Kona?
