    This is "Aquarium Life" - a wallhanging made with the leftover blocks of my obw Rings of Fire. I have added strips of the original fabric in the top and bottom windows of the tank.

    It measures 26ins x 46ins. The quilting in the "viewing windows" of the fish tank is done with a bright blue Bottom Line, but I only did STID on the black "tank", because I wanted it to hang nice and straight, not being so big.
    All I have left now is one small setting square!
    The fabric is from the Aquatica range by Robert Kaufman, there is a photo of it in the following:

    Gorgeous. Your rings of fire quilt reminded me of a firework display with all the bangs and rockets all going off at once. Brilliant work on both.

    Really, that is the most perfect fabric for a OBW quilt.

    Colors, value, shapes. It has everything. Perfect!

    I love your layout with the smaller blocks on the sides and the original fabric top and bottom, I agree with some of the others, that's a most perfect fabric choice for obw!

    Totally amazing! I love seeing the "before" fabric and the finished results of the OBW. Great job.
