The Fish Tails Continue

Hi Everyone,
I have created an additional hand-out for the Fish Tail Challenge.  I will talk about it in Quilt Snacks coming up at 2:00pm EDT

Here is a link to the handout:

Fish Tail Challenge


I know you do, so here is my Summer Quilt Challenge for you!

Use up some of your colorful scraps: 3-1/2", 2-1/2, and 2" squares to make a Fish Tail Quilt. Here are some images to get you inspired and started. I will post the approximate number of squares needed for a 30" x 30" and 30" x 40" quilt in the comments.- so who wants to play?
Check below for the recommended number and sizes for the quilt.

Challenge:   Come up with an original way to let your fish swim

The design is basic and works well in a mock-up so you can plan your colors.

Plan on using these Scraps for a 30" x 30" or 30" x 40" quilt:

background squares
100 - 3-1/2” squares
100 - 2” squares, folded in half to make folded triangles to form the fish body.

colorful scrappy squares
50 - 3-1/2” squares for the fish body
50 - 2-1/2” squares for the tail
