First quilt. All by hand, no pattern, love fish! 9 by 1 inches. Still needs a wee bit of tweaking.

I found these 4x5 plastic picture protectors and I want to fill them up with YOUR art. Let's swap.

That is absolutely wonderful! Shocked I love fish as well, and this is an absolutely fabulous way to combine that love with quilting! This rocks!

That looks fabulous. I'd love to see some close ups of the details. Is it all fabric or some painting too?

 Grin Thanks everybody  Grin

No photograph. The inspiration came from the little piece of leopard fabric in the fish. I drew it out and then found appropriate fabric for it...and to do the background. My mom owns it now.

I did use some white fabric pastels for highlight.

My next quilt will be of my pooch that passed away in May.
