SpongeBob SquarePants ain’t got nothin’ on the cute sea creatures featured on Riley Blake’s newest fabric line. Dive In The Ocean to find octopus, squid, sea horses and schools of colorful fishes.

When a new fabric line arrives, the first thing I ask myself is…“What can I make with this?”…besides a quilt?

I think we all like different options when it comes to sewing, whether it’s making bags, skirts, or gifties for the special ones in our lives.

So I chose to make a cute accent pillow for a baby’s room!

Splash! In The Ocean SewMod

I like projects that I can embellish and use different techniques like appliqué & embroidery. A chain stitch for the Splash really made the words ‘pop’ and adding the accent French knots to the anemone gave that some extra dimension too.  

Part of the fun of embellishing is searching for the trims and buttons. I came across tiny fish buttons and dug around my scraps for the ribbon. I even had some leftover Riley Blake jumbo red rick rack! Don’t throw those extra scrap pieces away. You might be able to use them on your own pillow!

And check out those little fishes swimming through the ocean stripes. My mom is the crochet artist in the family, so we have to thank her for that bit of cuteness!

I couldn’t forget the back of the pillow. It deserves something just as special. I fussy cut the selvage since the fishes were representing the color codes. A simple zig zag to tack it down and now it’s done!

After I finish something, I can’t wait to show it off. I didn’t hear..”It’s adorable”, or “That’s so cute”. The first thing I heard was…Who’s Alex?!?

Lol I don’t know who Alex is! I just needed a shop sample and we have no babies so Alex was a name I came up with!

Does anyone need an Alex baby pillow?…..

True Blue Baby I Love You…Tips On Cutting And Assembly

SewMod true blue baby quilt kit

“Have a whale of a good time with the fun nautical prints in the True Blue Collection featuring whimsical whales, splashing waves and fun geometrics. Anchors away!”

True Blue is designed by Ana Davis. I just love her children’s prints and Blend never, never disappoints me in the quality of their fabrics. I’ve loved every piece I’ve ever ordered from them and this is no exception! True Blue is vibrant and fun to work with.

I knew I wanted to do a strip quilt with this line. It’s perfect with the big playful whales and the baby whales in a row!

The kit is available in the Etsy shop. It includes step-by-step instructions to strip piece the quilt in no time for that special little one. Kit includes all your fabrics, binding and backing, and sews up fast for a baby shower or gift. You can easily quilt with straight lines. It’s a DIY complete project! *batting not included.

And I have some helpful tips for you if you’ve purchased the kit and are ready to start on your baby quilt.

I fussy cut the baby whales to make this quilt, but it wasn’t any trouble to do so since the fabric was printed really straight to begin with. Straighten the edge of your fabric so that the ‘white wave’ is on the cut. Line your ruler up for the 2 inches. The white wave that’s next in line should fall somewhere on that 2 inches. As you can see in the photo, my ruler lined up between the waves.

Cut your strip out and attach to the selected fabrics, taking note of the whale directions. They swim opposite each other!

After all these years sewing, I make the most basic mistakes:( Am I the only one out there that still does this?!? The seam ripper is my best friend..

Sew the strips together in pairs and trim the edges. *When sewing rows, alternate your sewing direction right to left and left to right. Alternating will keep rows straight and help prevent stretching in one direction.
