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!

I really like this quilt top so far. The saying will be the best icing for the cake. I can't wait to see it!

A very nice quilt - and unusual too! I think the saying is great and can't wait to see how you finish this off.
