    He's going to spend lots of time searching each of the blocks for fish -- not unlike the time spent on the bank or in the boat looking for fish! What a wonderful quilt - and adaptation for a man to enjoy! Great job!

    Stack and whack is where you carefully line up layers of the fabric, matching the pattern. Then you cut stips in the width you need and then triangles or diamonds. This one is 8 layers and diamonds.

    This is really cool and the use of the fish border works great.

    LOVE this! That is one huge quilt too. What an awesome stack and whack that fabric made, one of the nicest I have seen. I love how you made your blocks different sizes and broke up the stars with that water looking background, probably why I find this quilt so appealing. I used some of that same fish fabric it in my brothers fish quilt as well but could only get my hands on two yards so it was relegated to a border only and mine had a dark green background. Yours turned out spectacular. Have you gifted it to your brother yet?

    No, I have to find a way to get it to him. We don't live close. I have told him about it, and said he had to come pick it up.

    I agree! It's the sizes and placements you did that really enhance the pattern- I believe this is the best S&W I've ever seen! Kudos to you for a GREAT job done- and hoping he is able to get it soon!

    If I am seeing correctly, there are different sizes of stars?? Very interesting variation, if so. Beautiful framing treatment. Just lovely.
