Fish and Chips Quilt Pattern

$AUD 11.99

Fish are so much fun to use in quilt design as they are so flexible in the colours and textures you can use.

This fish quilt design offers five different fish blocks. All of the fish are different sizes and shapes so you can have fun choosing your fabrics. The large blocks between the fish can be a patterned fabric as shown in the pattern here or you can use a solid and be creative with your quilting.

In my alternate quilt, I used Shiva paint sticks to draw large kelp plants throughout the quilt. I then quilted them using a shiny rayon thread.

The pieced blocks also offer an option for creativity. The “chips” in this quilt use a free-form method of piecing. My alternate quilt raided the scrap basket to create large blocks of colour which are then cut down to size.

Enjoy going through your stash to locate just the right colour and texture for your fish!
