    I have some fabric with fish that I want to use as appliques, but can't come up with any ideas on what the quilt should look like. I want to use it with my batiks that have wonderful colors of the sea and look like underwater. Any ideas?

    I'm working on fish toys and am using a scale print so I thought I'd share a thought about the fish fabric I'm using.

    Go to www.Quiltshops.com and search for

    Wilmington Prints What's in the Ocean

    or simply

    fish scales.

    .........just my two cents worth ;-)
