    Fish Tank Wall Hanging

    I wanted to wait until it was finished so you could see the fish with eyes, but I couldn't. I call it "Ten Gallon World". It's 53 x 33 inches. Not yet sure how to quilt it, but that will come in time.

    I had a blast doing it. Hard to believe that all fit through the throat of my machine repeatedly.

    Yes, I designed it myself. I just drew it up on a piece of paper, and then went online and found pictures of fish to copy.

    Thanks for noticing the fish between the plants. I saw it in a picture and thought it would add to my portrayal.

    Thanks for all the nice compliments. It’s always nice to hear from others who do the same thing and can appreciate the work that went into a project.

    This is really beautiful. I seemed to get the same relaxing feeling when looking at your artwork as I do when watching real fish in an aquarium.
