Mermaid Quilt- my challenge quilt

I participated in a challenge my mother-in-law had for fun. Many of you know she owns a Happy Sewing Room - a quilt shop and she had a booth at Hershey quilt show. She though it will be fun to have a challenge between the people that help her at the booth. The prize is that the winner get to pick next years fabric. 

 <--- This is the challenge fabric(the green bubbles). As soon as I saw it I thought of making ocean sean with fishes and  bubbles from the challenge fabric. When I started working on the quilt I came up with the mermaid.

I love all the embellishments I did. Like the green neckless and the little belt. There are some blue stones on the rocks in the sand as well.

Here are the other quilts: 
My Mother-in-law made this cute Owl quilt!

My father-in-law made coasters. He wasn't very inspired by the fabric. 

Here is the winner this year. Trish made this stars quilt and the black really made them pop. 

Everybody did a great job! I had a lot of fun creating my quilt and everybody was close, but Trish won.  Congratulations Trish!
