Sun, Sky, Sand, Sea

In October of last year, I snagged some fabric for our local Project Linus’s challenge.  The fabric was some bright fish on a dark blue background.  I had a vague idea of what I wanted to do for a long time, and then I saw a picture of a carpenter’s square block and it crystallized in my mind.



I put the “sun” in the center, followed by sky, sand, and sea with the appliqued fishies.



I used fusible fleece on the fish so they puffed out a bit.



The quilting went a bit south.  I wanted it to look like weather patterns – fronts moving in and hitting each other.  Sigh.  More than my very basic quilting skills could handle.  But in the end it looked ok – definitely gave the quilt a lot of movement.




This is Project Linus #3 finish for this year.  Behind on my goal of one per month, but I will get caught up.

Linking up with Amanda for Finish It Friday.

  1. I think it’s fabulous you are trying to finish a quilt a month for such a great cause, and I love the idea of using fleece to make the fish stand out!
