I've finished the fish quilt and it is boxed and ready to send to my step-son.
As with every other quilt I've made, there were many lessons in this one. Most importantly I learned that I need to be more careful when cutting stripped fabric on the bias for the binding. I ended up with cuts going across the stripes in two directions. I also need to find a neater way to apply the binding. I'm not real pleased with how that turned out. But, otherwise, I think it came well. Some of the features sort of developed along the way. I decided to add a Pig Fish:
a yellow fin Tuna:
and a Marlin. The marlin is an iron on patch. It was a late edition because he caught his first Marlin after I had pieced the top of the quilt:
And....here's the back:
So, on to the next project which I think will be the cuddle quilt.
