    Fish piecing pattern?

    I'm looking for a foundation piecing pattern for a fish (ideally in a 6 inch block but I can be flexible with this!). Has anyone seen any good designs? It doesn't need to be hugely complicated

    This is one of my favorite FPP designers, I don't know if she has a fish but it is fun to look. http://www.whimsandfancies.com/contact/

    Sonic screwdrivers, fez, bow ties, and Stetsons are cool.

    There are some paper pieced ones around, don't know if that counts for "foundation pieced."

    Ah yes it does. I'm in the UK and our paper pieced is what you call 'English paper piecing' - but I know that your paper piecing is our foundation paper piecing... (if that makes sense).

    i will take a look at links from others, thanks!

    I think the Rainbow fish from the children's book would make an awesome quilt block! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:R...inal_cover.jpg

    Pam Bono had a wonder fish quilt. Sadly, she is gone now and her patterns are only found on eBay or if someone has them. It was realistic and complicated.
