Pokemon Fridays: Dratini (Block 12)

Welcome back to Pokemon Fridays, where this week we're making Dratini. He seems to be some kind of flying worm. ;)

I can't believe it's already 
time for the last block! Although, my son has drawn up a special quilt back for this one. So I'll probably post the tutorials for that, too as I get to it. But for now, this is the last block for the quilt top, and then in two weeks, for the next Pokemon Friday, I'll post the sashing. I haven't had a chance to sit down and figure it out, yet.

We were attacked by the flu a couple of weeks ago, and then my seasonal AND food allergies went all kinds of haywire, and I am STILL coughing and trying to get my energy back. I've been kind of a mess over here lately. ha! Just trying to keep up with life!

But enough about that, onward to the cutting! :) Dratini uses three colors of blue, two colors of grey, black, white, & background. Eight colors in all. 

I have listed the Moda Bella solids name of each, if you're using the bundle.

Bright Turquoise (background):

1 1/2" sq. (13)
1 1/2 x 2 1/2" (7)
1 1/2 x 5 1/2" (2)
2 1/2" sq. (3)
2 1/2 x 3 1/2" (1)
2 1/2 x 4 1/2" (2)
3 1/2 x 5 1/2" (1)
4 1/2 x 5 1/2" (2)
5 1/2" sq. (1)
5 1/2 x 11 1/2" (1)

Bluebell (lightest blue):

1 1/2" sq. (2)
1 1/2 x 2 1/2" (3)
1 1/2 x 3 1/2" (3)
2 1/2" sq. (2)

Little Boy Blue (medium blue):

1 1/2" sq. (8)
1 1/2 x 2 1/2" (4)
1 1/2 x 3 1/2" (1)
2 1/2" sq. (2)
2 1/2 x 4 1/2" (1)

Amelia Blue (darkest blue):

1 1/2" sq. (4)


1 1/2" sq. (22)
1 1/2 x 2 1/2" (15)
1 1/2 x 3 1/2" (4)


1 1/2" sq. (7)
1 1/2 x 2 1/2" (3)
1 1/2 x 3 1/2" (1)
1 1/2 x 4 1/2" (1)
2 1/2" sq. (1)
2 1/2 x 4 1/2" (1)

Silver (lighter grey):

1 1/2" sq. (7)
1 1/2 x 2 1/2" (3)
1 1/2 X 3 1/2" (4)

Graphite (darker grey):

1 1/2" SQ. (7)
1 1/2 X 2 1/2" (1)

As always, stitch together the pieces indicated by the small grey arrows first, then according to the numbered arrows. And always using scant quarter inch seams. When done with each section, label and set aside.

*NOTE: light blue has the measurements written in black, medium blue has the measurements written in white. (sometimes they are hard to tell apart in the diagrams.. for me anyway) :)

Same with the greys. Lighter grey has measurements written in black, darker grey has measurements written in white.








Assemble the block, and you will have a 20 1/2" Dratini block! (20" finished)

Thanks for sewing along! :D And for putting up with my skipping a week here and there! This has been a lot of fun!

I'll sit down and get the sashing measurements all worked out, and have them ready to post for the next Pokemon Friday, if not sooner.

Also, I'll come back and link up the downloadable PDF this weekend!

Thanks for visiting & Happy Stitching!



Cute block!! I'm looking forward to seeing the quilt put together and seeing the magic your son has come up with for the backing! I hope you get over your cough and get your energy back faster than I have (75 days and still coughing junk).
