    Here is my first block to my next quilt being made for my brother & sister-in-law. I've promised them a quilt for the longest time and now am starting on it. Each 12" block has 61 pieces and I have 50 blocks to make. Here is a sneak peak at their quilt. I think it turned out really nice, but a ton of matching to do, so I really have to concentrate on it. I used scant 1/4" seams. I'm so excited to make this for them, I know she'll love it since she loves dolphins. Some of the blocks will have killer whales in the center, but she doesn't mind.

    What do you all think?

    Pattern Name is "Trade Winds"

    What a great block!

    Your fabric choices are really effective in that pattern, and blend very well to hide multiple seam lines.

    You have to look really closely to see all the HST's and FG sub-units.

    Trade Winds, huh? I'll have to look into that one. Looks very, very versatile.

    Looking forward to seeing the whole thing done.

    I think it looks stupendous and whole heartedly agree with MTS's comments. This is going to make a fantastic quilt and will be so much fun to watch it come together. As you progress, it will be worth it piecing all those blocks because it is sure to be uber-satisfying as you get more and more blocks added and watching it come together (my most favorite part of the process!) Please post pictures as you progress along the way.
