Four Continent Fish Bag - Part 1

Happy 4th of July America!  It seems like a good day to post about fish.  I started this project as part of the Minnesota Quilter's Global Challenge.  We got four Cherrywood Fabrics (red, yellow, blue, and green) and then were to add up to four more fabrics that were global.  I used Some silk (dark purple), Velvet I bought in Houston from an Australian vendor (the red fish face), fish leather from Iceland (the turquoise that looks like it has scales!), and something else too you'll have to wait to see.

Here's my fish all fused down.  I decided to add the yellow outline around him so you could see him better.

And here he is all blanket stitched up.  I decided to use black on this one so you could see the pieces clearly.

I hope you get to quilt today!  And maybe fish too...


  1. This is much fun and such a great variety of fabrics! I wish I could pet those fabrics - really they are perfect in this fishy quilt.

  2. I just love your fish, such fun colors. Blanket stitching is my favorite of all times.

  3. That is so fun. I have seen a single fish art quilt in a book and have been tempted to make my own. Now I am more inspired. I just have to create my own design. LOL
