My quilt is a statement about being yourself and going against the flow. Just a bit of fun. It took a long time to stitch down the 26 fish and their 26 eyes!! Japanese cotton for the brown fish and a shot cotton for the water. All machine stitched and quilted.

Here is your FISH quilt, Deb.
After much pain and suffering I finally got the photo onto this page. Phew!!!
I had loads of fun playing around with the woven background. Have wanted to have a go at this for a long time. Your fish quilt seemed just right.
Enjoy all your FISH quilts.

this my 2nd attempt at this, so if the first appears please forgive me. Thanks for the theme Deb, I rather left it to the last minute, as classes have kicked in again for the year, with interstate and country trips - however enjoyable they are.
I first saw the huge Nishiki Goi -[brocaded carp or Koi fish] in Chinese gardens where they have been known to live for over 200 years. They were originally bred in China over 1,000 years ago. I was fascinated by the variety of colors of the Koi.
Looking forward to seeing the other challenges, and focusing on the Harvest theme from Jane.
cheers everyone from Lorraine
