Fishy fishy

OMG how cute is this quilt?  I absolutely loved quilting it for my customer, Marge. She does such a good job with her piecing and it is a joy to quilt for her. And just look at the border fabric!

So much fun seeing all the different items in the fishbowls!

We chose my freehand allover Dwirling design by the Pajama Quilter to make it look like swirling water

And look a little mermaid in the bottom right fishbowl.



 And the back

It's a small lap size with Glide thread top and bottom with Hobbs 80/20 batting.

  7. That is such a lovely quilt Vicki, had she been collecting those fabrics? I saw the quilting before I read the text and swirling water was exactly what came into my head too. I'm so glad you shared this lovely quilt.

  12. Oh, How can one not like this. I would want to keep it. Dwirling is the perfect name for this quilting, and the perfect choice for this quilt. I would not have thought of adding a mermaid. Cute cute cute.
