|One Fish, Two Fish baby quilt|
38" x 41.5" finished size
It wasn't planned that way, but when I started pulling fabrics from my stash, I discovered that I had a group of fish prints that worked together very nicely. Even the binding fabric has tiny fish on it! That led to the name One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish for the quilt. I also ordered a copy of the Dr. Seuss book of the same name to include in the gift.
For the back I used a cute alphabet print with many of the same colors as the fish fabrics.
Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend the baby shower this afternoon because I have jury duty today. I left my gift with a friend to deliver to the shower--I need to send her a message to take photos of the mother-to-be holding it.

I am impressed. No way could I pull off an entire quilt from start to finish in only 5 days. It takes me 5 days to screw up enough courage to cut into my fabric!! And I love that you included the Dr. Seuss book with your gift. :-)ReplyDelete

Nothing wrong with a fast, easy quilt! Sometimes they work better than the fancy ones because people are not afraid to use them:)ReplyDelete
Such a great idea for a quick quilt, and I love the backing!ReplyDelete
Great Collection of fish fabrics which will make some little someone very happy.ReplyDelete
I ran into the same situation a month ago - a baby shower within a week and I did a girl strippy quilt with mermaid, octopus and sea horse material.ReplyDelete
