A Bright Finish!!

One thing you can always say about Kaffe fabrics....they are bright!
(Gotta do something about the edges around the veggie garden)
There was a 1/2 yard piece of awesome fish in my stash and bits and bobs of a few others.
Cut into differents size strips boldly framing the fish made a great top.
 I even  had a few yards of something for the backing.  Added a little strip of Grunge to make it just big enough.  My pal Pat practiced with her new long arm. I really like what she did!:)
Some bright perle cotton hand stitching follows the wonky edges of the border.
 Fish too.
 Now if only I had a wall to hang it on.  For now it's helping keep the chill out of the house!
Second finish of the second quarter!  Of course all I had to do was the hand quilting and binding!
Now the edges look better...thank heavens for peonies and lamb's ear!!


  1. love how you quilted round the fish with the perles! You are right, nice and bright!!

  2. Very very cool! I love the vibrancy of Kaffe fabrics - great work!

  3. I love the bright colors of this quilt - I wish bright colors didn't intimidate me do buy!!
