Hello everyone!

I just finished up this quilt yesterday, and I have to say, I think it is my absolute favorite!  It started off innocently enough, I wanted to practice embroidery, so I thought it would be fun to make Ariel's woefully underappreciated sisters.  Then, once I had those, I thought I might as well make their names.  Then, I thought it would be a shame to just leave them in a box somewhere, so I might as well use them to practice drafting some irregular quilt blocks (not sure if there is a name for that or not).  So now I have this nifty baby blanket, yay!

I always thought Ariel's sisters should get more credit, I mean, they seem like pretty cool chicks, just maybe a little less adventuresome.  They would be just as hot as Ariel, if only they'd lose the ugly haircuts!  So here is my daughters of triton in a sea of green quilt (yeah for TLM and the Beatles all in one quilt!):



And here are some closeups in proper order with (imaginary) musical accompaniment:



Ah ha ha

AH HA HA !!

Thanks for indulging me!  Let me know what  you think!

It's very cute, and now the song is totally in my head.

1.  This rocks!!!

2.  Where did you find the pictures of the sisters? 

3.  Once I tried the irregular quilt blocks and was so frustrated and depressed that I threw it all away and cried myself to sleep that night.  I am SSSOOOO impressed with your skills!!!

4.  The colours are great!!

Well, I wasn't exaggerating when I said they were all just ariel with bad haircuts, they really do all have the exact same body and face!  Here is the picture that I used to copy them from, though:

Thank you for all of the kind replies!  I really didn't expect this much attention.

Edit: Acutally, here is the sketch I did in case anyone finds it useful.  It's REALLY rough, but, eh.  Click for full size
