Fish Under The Sea Block

Fish Under The Sea

I just started on this block which will have a "Fish Under The Sea" theme.
I have absolutely no clue where I'm going with this piece and am feeling quite challenged at the moment. I have a ton of pretty little fish beads and charms, i have all sorts of small sea shells (I'll need Scott to drill some holes in them for me) and that's all I know about what I'm doing!

I wanted to cover the seams but only did a simple feather stitch on each seam using a thread color as close to the fabric as I could. The blue fabric at the top is one of my painted dryer sheets.

I'm off to figure out where I want to go with this. I should have more to share tomorrow.

The colors are wonderful, and the feather stitches are so even. Did you say "painted dryer sheets?" As in Bounce and like that? I guess I haven't read far enough back, or skipped around too much in your blog!

Hi Susan! My feather stitches where done using 8.5 count waste canvas. That's how I get them so even.

And yes, dryer sheets like Bounce. I'm going to be doing a tutorial on making flowers with the painted dryer sheets. That'll come sometime in September or October and it'll be a 2 part tutorial. It's a really fun project and the flowers are perfect for crazy quilting.

I love the simplicity of this. The eveness of your stitches is what makes it so beautiful. June
