Here is the fish quilt top without borders or cats. It measures roughly 52 by 56 inches. I'm quite pleased with the rainbow layout. It's very simple, sweet and peaceful.

Unfortunately, I followed some of the blog comments and added a cat. What a mess. Now the quilt is less than the size of a baby quilt. I expect that by this evening this quilt will be a placemat. I thought I had plenty of fabric, but at this rate I sure hope Vicki W. still has her hand-dyed fabric available for next year's challenge. In the meantime, you might want to go see if anyone else was foolish enough to add a killing machine, I mean cat, to their quilt over at the Scrappy Rainbow Challenge.

  1. Ha, ha! What did you do with the cat! I love the fish like this and I found Nimo in the close up but not in the big picture. Is he the one the cat got, or did he escape again?

  2. I love the layout on your big quilt. The way they are all swimming away from the middle diagonal and the transitioning in color gives so much movement to the quilt. As for the cat! Oh dear.
