Fish Quilt Finished!

I did it! My Skipping School Fish Quilt is finally complete! I am so excited that my drunkards path blocks came out so well for only my fourth quilt!

Sorry for my unceremonious photo. I am at my parents house and didn't have my clothes line 
to hang it on.

I kind of like the back more than the front. I just love the color combination of the blue and green. Especially with the label it just looks more girly. Also, I hate those damn fish. 

I literally finished this quilt a couple hours before I went to hand deliver the quilt to my good friend Henrike. I had machine stitched the binding on the day before I left Phoenix. Then I hand stitched the back of the binding on my flights. I tried to machine stitch it and it looked like POOP!!

This is a photo of me hand sewing in the airport. I was getting a couple of funny looks from people so I asked them if they wanted to see it. Surprisingly they were really excited to see it.

The last photo is my dad holding baby Eleanor. As you can see she isn't too excited for my dad to hold her. But can you see the quilt in the background? Henrike's mother in-law made it like 20 years ago. It is applique with cross-stitch and some crewel work. It is really amazing! 

Linking up to Finish it Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts!!


  1. What a great use of a drunkard's path block! Super cute, and that baby will spend many happy hours staring at those fishies!

  2. Thank You! I had no idea what I was getting myself into with the drunkards path tho!
