|Something's Fishy by Joanne Adams Roth|
Here's a picture of the fabric before I cut it apart and after it was cut into separate pictures:
I had a general idea that I would place the pictures in vertical rows, with a background that was earthy and watery. I pulled out matching fabrics and did some free form curved piecing, inserting a piece of fabric here and there. Then, I realized I didn't want to cut these all apart to piece in the pictures. So fusing was the option I decided upon.
Here is a progress picture. You can see that I pieced the center panel, fused down two rows, then kept adding rows to the right and left. I tried to match up the rows, but didn't care that they didn't match perfectly, since the overall quilt was going to have a choppy feeling anyway.
I finished the quilt and presented it to my husband in the picture below. Looks happy, don't you think?
