I just finished and sent off this baby quilt for my cousin-in-law who just had a baby. They waited to find out the gender until the baby was born....so I tried to keep in unisex. They had a girl. I had not meant to sew it with the orangey-red but I resorted to it after I realized that I didn't have enough of the intended color. I think it worked out alright. I'm glad its done!

That is beautiful!  How long did it take you to make?  Did you use different fabrics with fish already on them or did you stencil or embroider any?  That looks like you put many hours into it, I hope the recipients love it!
Great job!

Very cute!  The fishbowl pattern is so fun, and I love the cat at the bottom.

It took me about I dunno....maybe 20 hours...I spent way more time on it than I should have...and I procrastinated so it took me f.o.r.e.v.e.r to get it done. Yes, I used different fabrics that already had the fish printed on them. My favorite is the one with turquoise water and the koi on it.

I love the cat too...I think he "makes" the design.

How cool is that!  Did you make up the patter or use an existing one?  I saw a quilt displayed t hat was similar in vein -- it was a scientist's dusty shelf with specimen jars filled with bugs, lizards, etc -- it was cool but your is cuter!
