Something's Fishy . . .

This is a one-block wonder quilt.  I saved some of the original fabric to use on the back, and embroidered fish to swim through the mazes created by the cubes.  Many of the hexagons show the fish swimming round and round the hexagons.  Sometimes there is a smiling face, or a tail in others.  The cubes were a challenge, but fun to add to the quilt.  I quilted this using circle templates centered at each hexagon intersection, which created interlocking circles, more visable on the back.  I quilted a cable in the first blue border,  free motion flip-flop feathers in the narrow pink border, and a free motion veined swirl in the large outer blue border.  I earned a second place ribbon in the 2012  String Along Quilt Guild show.          78 x 85
