Fish love to travel together. This fun to make quilt has 10 bright fish enjoying each other’s company.
The applique and the quilting are done at the same time. The appliques are sewn with raw edges. These are designed to fray to the sewn edges and give a cozy, folk feel to the quilt. There are no time consuming satin stitches or messy glue paper.
This quilt would be beautiful to hang or to use every day. It can be enjoyed by all ages.
This pattern includes complete easy to follow numbered step by step directions with photos. There are full size printable patterns for the fish.The pattern is written with metric units in parenthesis
