Mermaid Tails (and a table runner)

My red-headed granddaughter's favorite Disney Princess is Ariel from Little Mermaid.  Her third birthday theme this year was mermaid, so Oma decided to make her a few mermaid tails for her birthday gifts.
One to play dress up with.
And one to snuggle in.

She's a big girl now with a shiny new backpack.
Just for fun I gave my little dog a Mohawk.  One day I'll do it with mousse so it will stay.
Last November I took a class through my guild by Claudia Dallas Gomez and in the class I made two blocks.  Today I took a quilt as you go class by Pat Robertson.  Last night I was looking for something to use for today's class and saw those 2 blocks on my design wall and decided to make a 3rd one and then use those for a quilt as you go runner.
Colors are much prettier (beachy colors) in real life.  I think I need a new camera.  Or just use my cell phone from now on.

I also finished a small quilt from the guilds block of the month blocks I won last month but forgot to take a picture and already donated it to our guild for their charity group.

I also finished a small quilt for the local quilt shows challenge which was 'water'.  Can't show it until after the show in April.

I have two large quilts that are pinned and ready to quilt --but I have my art quilt challenge quilt to complete first.  It's a bag of stuff challenge - kind of.

Thanks for looking.

A mermaid party sounds delightful. And soooooo cute! Your table runner looks great. The blocks look really fun to make.

I'm sure your granddaughter will enjoy the mermaid tails. Great idea to use existing blocks for a class. Learn a technique and move stuff out of your stash.
