    Searching for fish/ocean life

    I want to make a quilt that features various kinds of ocean fish and am having a great deal of difficulty finding anything. I don't need lots but I do need variety. Angel fish, Lion fish, Clown fish, Jelly fish all spring to mind. The quilt I have in mind can be seen here: http://filminthefridge.com/2012/02/1...ers-quilt-top/

    The fish would be the "feature" squares, can vary in size and, as you can see, do not even have to all be the same size. I've been searching all over with no luck.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Try a google search for coloring pages for the above named fish. For example: Clown fish

    I used Images at google for "Ocean Life" and got multiple photos you could use. https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...mg.NUzxSZLvQLA

    Not fish - but have the equivalent of a fat quarter with sea otters. The fabric is from years ago. Also have a beachy sandy fabric - shells, starfish, some footprints. Not quite a FQ. Would give to someone who would use them.

    Thank you everyone who has responded so far. I'm trying to avoid printing photos for this but that did make me remember Spoonflower and I found a couple of things there that I can use and also managed to find a couple of FQs on an Etsy site that I can use. I think I might be okay at this point.

    You guys are the greatest!

    Funny you should ask.... I just got a shipment on ocean themes from e.quilter.com. I particularly like them because you can use their search box to go directly to what you want. And you can pick out a color in a fabric, click on it, and several fabrics with that shade of color come up (not general, but very specific). I've been using them for years and they are always right on... with their photos, their service, their shipping.
