I have a finish to share to end August and begin September. It's my version of ScrapDance Quadrille, the 2022 mystery designed by Carole at From My Carolina Home. I started with a fat quarter bundle of ocean-themed prints that I bought at a fun quilt shop that I visited on Cape Cod in May of 2022. We made lots of HSTs, and they turned into two pretty blocks.

I made four blocks plus added two borders, and ended up with a 33.5 inch square tabletopper that I'm calling "Mermaids Dance!"
I had one fat quarter that didn't make it into the quilt top, so I used it for the back. Loving a pieced back, I brought the fat quarter up to size with scraps of Sprinkles.
I bought a fun batik for the binding from my LQS because I couldn't come up with anything in my stash that seemed quite right. I knew this would just look like swirls of blue-green and white in the binding, but I couldn't resist it!
This is going in my aqua stash for the September Rainbow Scrap Challenge color!
I made a special label for this one, so you could see the mermaid print.
Mermaids Dance is perfect for the outside table on our back porch.
I'm hoping to take Mermaids Dance along to visit the ocean when we head to the Oregon Coast in a couple weeks. Maybe I'll get a couple of fun photos of it there!
Meanwhile, I'll be sharing my finish with several link-ups this weekend, including:
