In what can only be called a miracle - I finished kissing fish......and not the "in the water kind". I definitely wanted to challenge myself with the whole quilting business this year, but think I bit off more than I could chew with this baby!
So without further ado - Here is my version of "Kissing Fish".....

|Lots of straight, stitchin in the ditch!|
|Gorgeous ribbon fabric I bought on a whim!|
|Love, love how this light has shown off the colours!|
So the five million points are not perfect, the lines are not all amazingly straight and heck - I may have broken a needle! But I LOVE it! I used THIS PATTERN from Freshly Pieced. Although it is classed as "easy", I would say it's easy but fiddly and at times frustrating. Only because of the 100's of HST's!
I chose the ribbon fabric for the backing, basically because I was going to use it on the quilt top and then forgot! And after much deliberation, I went with all the different prints for the binding - kind of rainbow-y? And now I have to wait a whole two weeks to gift this to a very dear friend of mine, for her very much loved baby girl, who is yet to enter the world!
And yes - that is ALL I finished this week - but what a finish it is!
I'm linking up with T.G.I.F.F. being hosted by Kit Lang - Art this week!
