This is the back using Menagerie cows in lime. I left one side of the pillow with the cows upside down as my 6 yo thought it was hilarious that the cow had a head on both ends.
A bit of fancy fish quilting.
I use many types of medium for my ‘papers’ – freezer paper, light cardboard, Floriani Stitch n Wash – but for this project I used printer paper and basting.
For the centre hexagon, I made an irregular 9-patch with borders and cut the hexagon shape from my block, making sure it was centred. The outer hexagons were cut from 2 strips of fabric sewn together. Once again, I aligned the centre of the hexagon along the seam and cut out.
Today, I am offering one lucky blogger the chance to win a ‘Rose Star Template’ 2″ set.
All you have to do is make up a name for the pushion (cushion/pillow). Entertain me with your hilarious suggestions. The catch is (excuse the pun), it has to include the word fish or type of fish.
