Whether you are inspired by singing Mr. Ray, the Grandma from Moana, or the Black Manta, or you are just fascinated with these amazing creators,

I hope you enjoy making the Manta Ray quilt.

Sizes: Wall 24"x28", Crib 36"x42", and Lap 48"x56". Border the lap and put it on a twin bed.


Skill Level: Beginner The pattern lists fabric yardage, then uses charts to show the number of strips to cut of each color, and the number of pieces to cut from those strips, labeling each piece alphabetically. The entire top is then sewn using straight 1/4" seams. The shaping is done with quick corner half square triangles also called the snowball method. There are some instructional videos on YouTube, search Counted Quilts.


Selecting Fabrics: Due to the fact that the pattern pieces may be sewn both horizontally and vertically to make the picture we recommend using non-directional fabric. Third picture is using Timeless Treasure Tonga batiks
