    Love it! Did you hand dye the fabric? Amazing colors.

    Wonderful work Janet. Can't wait to see the next one. Is there glitter on the fish? I just love the textured look of it. That background reminds me of being under water and seeing the sunlight filtering through. So realistic.

    This is great! I love the 'artistic' side of quilts!

    No glitter. It's novilty fabric. It's a blue mesh with the glitter on it.

    You should be happy! This is so dynamic! You can feel the splash of the water as the fish is jumping! Fantastic!
