When my work colleague Maria told me she was pregnant I knew this would be the perfect baby quilt. I showed her the pattern and she was really excited.
The fishy fabric I found has really cute fish with very happy faces and I love that there are different types of fish.
Backing fabric is also really important and I found this cute piece that is perfect not only for the backing but also the binding.
The pattern was very easy to follow and it went together very quickly.
I quilted a meander on the blue background for the appliqued fish having first outlined the fish.
On the fishy fabric I quilted waves between the fish. I'm really pleased with the finished quilt and know Maria will love it. We are having a baby shower for her in early June as the baby is due at the end of June. She is excited as this is her first baby. She doesn't know whether the baby is a boy or girl and she doesn't want to know. At first I was a little worried that the quilt might be more appropriate for a boy but the bright colours and the fish fabric make it perfect for either.
Thanks Connie for a great pattern, it was a pleasure to make.
Now to get back to my knitting which is also for Maria's baby. I also need to print the quilt label and attach it.
