Sharkey Quilt {Free Pattern}

sharkey block

When I saw this new fabric from Riley Blake Designs called Sharktown I completely FREAKED OUT!!!  And then I showed my daughter (whose favorite animals are sharks) and she TOTALLY FREAKED OUT!  So I promised her a Sharkey Quilt for one of her many graduation presents.  I Love Love Love theme prints, especially animal theme prints.  However, they sometimes pose a design challenge: showing off the fabric + quilt design.  I put on my thinking cap…..I wanted something that looked sharkey……and the Sharkey Block was born!  I love the idea of using half square triangles to resemble shark fins (or shark teeth!). The center block lets you show off the super amazing fabric designs!

I designed this fun pattern using the Sharkey Blocks which measure 10″ and some blue water sashing!  I choose the all the blue fabrics from the Sharktown fabric line and added in the solid gray accent.  You can download the PDF pattern by clicking HERE.
