    wonderful idea for baby quilt

    I LOVE this idea! Grandma (quilter) designed fish parts such as bodies, fins, lips, face, tails, etc. She cut out several of each using different fabric, and applied fusible web. Guests at the baby shower were instructed to pick one of each part and assemble their own fish, then write their name and a sentiment on a label that went on "their" block. She will assemble & quilt it for the parents-to-be. How awesome is that?!?!?!?!

    What a sweet idea.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Can be used with many different shapes!!
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    Thanks for sharing such a fun looking project. I'm sure a lot of thought and work was put into the process, but Mom will definitely have one of a kind quilt. Going to read article again....maybe try it out. Hugs

    What a wonderful idea for any group quilt! I can see this as a quilt for a preschool teacher or Sunday school teacher also.

    I would love to do this for a bridal shower... need something other than the fish , though... I think I would make table runner and placemats.... or a wall hanging... any suggestions what I could use... thought about a flower, but not sure there would be enough variations.... thanks for help
