So this is as far as I've gotten on the border for the fish quilt.... Because this is what's happening.....
First day of tiling. Standing in the center of the mess you can see, the front area.

Towards back yard.

Down the hallway towards bedrooms and bathroom.

Front entry.

That's about 500 square feet of tile folks. I will post more pics as we go along.

Current WIP

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."
Now to get started on those letters!

My first block:

Orange Crush done!

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!
