the fish are done!!
I just spent a great day with Laurie Swim, mapping out the quilting pattern for my fish. It's going to be watery arms that look like hugs from the back of the quilt, and like water behind the fish on the topside of the quilt.
This is the transparency I used to project onto the backside fabric in order to map out the quilting pattern.
On Tuesday morning, the ladies at the Zion church and I are going to start hand-stitching this line drawing through the three layers of the quilt to hold them together (and to make a cool watery-huggy arm effect). Neat-o!
