Last year I participated in the Rainbow Scrappy Challenge sponsored by the blog So Scrappy. This was my first time making a rainbow quilt. It was also the first time I had made a quilt incrementally...where I made a new color of fish each month. But by the end of the year, I had all the blocks to make this quilt. The quilt is roughly 60 inches square.
Here is a close-up of some of the fish. Each fish is quite easy to make...the body is simply a 4.5 inch square with 1.5 inch squares sewn to the corners and ironed over to make a triangle. This is also called a snowball block. Give the snowball block a tail and you have a fish.
I should, however, mention the tragic loss of quite a few of the fish to a marauding cat. Needless to say, some of the participants in the Rainbow Scrappy Challenge made patchwork cats, and with all of the linking from blog to blog, these kinds of problems are inevitable.
Hope you enjoyed this fish tale. To catch more adventures, swim on back to Amy's Bloggers' Quilt Festival.
