Scrappy Seahorses!

After making the Canyon Patchwork Swoon quilt for my daughter, I was left with some short pieces of the jelly roll strips.
I went looking for a way to use up these scraps and came across the Watercolor Seahorse quilt by Elaine Summercrafter which used lots of little 2.5" squares so I got out my seam ripper and pulled some of the strip sets apart.
As I was using colourful squares, I also decided to go with an aqua background appropriately named "Sea".
Lots of little HST's were sewn and trimmed before piecing the quilt!
This is the first of the three seahorses.
