Here are my fish swap blocks from a couple of months ago with some free formed seaweed. I had planned on just bordering and being done, but after playing around with Tonya's at Lazygalqulting free form lettering on Emily's quilt, I have decided to border it with a little fishy saying. So I enlisted some creative brainpower from my buddies at Mailblocks and Kerry gave me the cutest little saying!
"Any old fish can just float along and dream but it takes a really special fish to swim against the stream."
I do not know where my fascination with sampler quilts that involve houses came from, but I must have thirty different "one of these days" patterns saved. This BOM was posted to a list I belong to and I just tought it was adorable and just couldnt resist doing this BOM from Harmonyquilts.
Front. I think I might have screwed up the orientation of a couple of the blocks....but its still cute. Lots of seams between pieced front and back, it made quilting a little difficult. Back. Swapped blocks and unloved fabric. Those dogs are such camera hogs!
