I have always been impressed with the colours (mainly blues) of the Rainbow Fish in the children's book, by Marcus Pfister, that I gave to one of my nieces. When Deb chose her theme I decided to make a quilt featuring a REAL Rainbow Fish. My research of this Australian/New Guinea small fish resulted in lots of information about species, habitat, feeding, popularity in aquariums etc, however, images that I could find were, to say the least, very disappointing. And so after all the research my Rainbow Fish is fictional - this is how I believe that a Rainbow Fish should look!!
