Quilt Top Notes/Techniques

My first quilt.

Used crappy polyester batting that melted and squished when fish were fused on.  Didn’t know how to sew on borders, so just sewed the them on; definitely not square.

I still display this quilt in my house and like to see how far I’ve come.

Quilting Notes/Techniques

Essentially a quilt-as-you-go, zig zagging over the edges of the water strips. Straight line quilted 1/4″ from inside of border.
