The theme for Row By Row 2018  was “Sew Musical”.  We designed our block, with the help of  Susan Teece of Bent Pin Creationsbased on the sounds of the orca whales located in our local ocean.   Echolocation is the process of using reflected sound waves to hunt for food, detect objects and communicate.  Orcas use this technique, producing sounds that are quite musical.  To find out more on how we arrived at this design, check out our blog post.

This pattern is for a 26″ square quilted wall hanging.  It may also be made into a pillow cover, suitable for a 18″ square pillow.  cut into a square, enhanced with a modern border, and made into a nautical themed toss cushion.  Techniques include bargello piecing and zig zag applique stitching.

Skill level – easy.

Size – 26” square (66cm square)

This is also available as a pattern.
