Fantasy Fish....4



I put together one more Fantasy Fish...

Blue Fish is....... Fish 4



Here is Blue Fish

His pale colored fins need something...






Outlining them in black fabric helps...






Let's add some skinny fin spikes...






Yes, now Blue Fish is done!






Here are all 4 Fantasy Fish on the Big Board...






This is my Big Board with the new hand dyed cover.

I decided a simple hand dyed background works best

for the Fantasy Fish.




I dug through my cupboard of simple low-immersion

hand dyes and this is what I decided on for

backgrounds for the fish:


Fantasy Fish 1






Fantasy Fish 2






Fantasy Fish 3






Fantasy Fish 4


These are now all ironed, basted and ready to go under the needle.

I plan to machine quilt the entire background...

BEFORE I fuse the fish down.


More to come...

Oh my gosh, I love them!

They are delightful. I'm curious how well they will stick once you've quilted the entire ground. And whether or not those quilt lines will be visible. Not sure I'd have the courage or vision so it will be fun to watch this.

Stunning! I hope my book arrives this week so I can start making some fish.
