I love quilts, designing, sewing and teaching. My curvy looking patterns can be made entirely with straight seams. Please join me on the road, at my sewing machine or in my studio.

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
