Hand-Pieced QAL - Block 4

This week's block is made of Quarter-Square Triangles, and I decided it would be a good block to feature my fat quarter of seals and sea lions with some light blue background fabric.

We always find these guys very entertaining when we come across them while exploring coastal areas.   Sunning themselves near the wharf or playing in the water - fun to watch!

I was really happy with my stitching on this block and it all came together quite smoothly!

Before pressing!

I even feel comfortable showing the back this time!  :)

I laid out all four blocks on some sandy beach fabric, which may become the sashing when it comes time to put everything together.

Block directions and tutorials for the Hand-Pieced QAL can be found on Kristin's blog, Simple.Handmade.Everyday and on Patty's blog, Elm Street Quilts.
