The pieces that will connect the fish were constructed and sewn to the fish.
All that's left is to decide what fabric I will use in the middle and then make a brown ring for the barrel.
I've also managed to stitch another block for my Road 66 quilt. These blocks are so much fun to make and they are big. The hexagons are 1 1/4" whereas my hexagons for The Meadery are 3/4"!
That's it for today. Time for a cuppa and a little sewing! Until I post again, happy sewing.
Your are definitely the Queen of fussy cutting. Your amazing!ReplyDelete

I absolutely love your pilchards! You are such a good artist!ReplyDelete
Oh wow, is this awesome Karen.ReplyDelete
Karen, your fish are wonderful, I'm so enjoying seeing your Cornish quilt come to life. I'm living in Bude so a different type of scenery to that you are describing but it's all so beautiful and varied in this part of the country. The Route 66 blocks are lovely as well.

Thank you for your nice comment on my blog.
Now I have to go watch "Doc Martin" as I quilt to live some of the Cornish beauty.
This is such a clever idea--the fabric is perfect as a background for the fish! I love the movement of the blue hexagons on your Road 66 rosette too.ReplyDelete
I've never thought of a fish as exquisite, before. See what you've done to me. It's gorgeous.ReplyDelete
