I am going to try to post this. I don't know if it will work or be of any help. :?
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I don't see any fishy pattern...what happened?
I have a top from the 30s with this pattern. I.ve also heard it called loaves and fishes
fish block as jpg
Do you have a photo of the top from the 30's? It would be fun to see that block all colored in & used in a quilt. :D
