    I just wanted to get some more time quilting in so last night I squared up a top and a back and loaded it up and quilted it today. I love this fabric and couldn't see cutting it up. :)
    It's queen size.

    I see why you did not want to cut it up. What beautiful fish fabric & your quilting is lovely.

    Thanks. I thought it was a good way to get some more quilting in and not have to finish any of the other projects I already have started...lol.

    I think quilting it whole cloth was a good idea on this fabric. Very pretty and unique.

    That is such cool fabric. I can see why you used it as a whole cloth quilt. Great job on the quilting too. Great job and thanks for sharing.

    I do just love the fabric. I was going to add boarders and make it bigger, but I got a little lazy :lol:

    That's a happy quilt with all the smiling fish! Your quilting on the back is terrific, too.

    Just freehand. I don't really like doing pantos.

    I agree, it would be a shame to cut up that fabric. It made a lovely quilt and you did a fantastic job with the quilting.

    Nice. Love the fabric too. Like you say get in some quilting. I do practice pieces and cut them into potholders or doll quilts or even could be for the doggys at the shelter. They don't go to waste. Nice job on the quilting.

    I've done that before too. I quilted a big piece and we cut it up and made cat beds for our local shelter. Good way to use up some of the fabrics you don't really like anymore too!!!
    Thank you :)
