Mermaid's Hair

Mermaid's Hair quilt block
The colours I chose for this quilt block were derived from the character of Ariel in the Disney movie The Little Mermaid. I also seem to remember while reading Superman comics when I was a kid, that one of his many girlfriends was "Lori Lemaris", a mermaid with red hair. So, how could I tamper with that?

This is an easy five patch block to construct and uses only the two most basic quilt patches -- the square and half square triangle. I choose to construct the block as an uneven nine patch as I find that an easier method than sewing five rows of five patches.
