    I made this quilt last year along with several members of my quilt guild. One of the ladies looked at a picture and figured it out and then we all made it. I kept seeing the kissing fish and pinwheels so that is what I named mine. Now all the other gals call theirs that, too. Took me until this year to get the back made and then I FMQ it on my machine. I racked my brain for a week trying to think of a design and finally just gave up and did stippling. I think it came out pretty well. I learned to check the back though after pinning and before quilting as I have one little tuck in back. Not too bad though for a beginning FMQ-er.

    Very pretty quilt. Looks like it's standing on its own two feet. LOL

    I would not have found them if you hadn't told me the fish were there. It is really a cool quilt. I love the colors you chose.

    My DH (holding quilt) said this was the best picture I will ever take of him. :-) He loved your comment!
