Sun, Sand, and Sea BOM -Block #9 - Bathing Beauty

Today the ninth block of the 
Sun, Sand, and Sea Block of the Month is revealed
and
has the link to her pattern to share.


We can't have a sunny quilt without a swimsuit, flip flops, and sunscreen.

This block, 
Bathing Beauty,
 is super quick to make with only a little piecing and large fused applique pieces.  
This block is big at 12" x 24" finished.
The pattern is available by clicking HERE.
I pieced 1 1/2" strips for my swimsuit before I cut and appliqued it to the background.

Thanks to 
Clothworks,
I'm stitching my blocks for this quilt with
American Made Brand solid fabrics.
The colors are so vibrant and nice to stitch with!
Perfect for the beach.

To applique,
 I ONLY use my favorite fabric iron on adhesive by 
Therm O Web,

To stitch around all those little pieces
 I used my "go to" -
50 wt.
