TGIFF - Kissy Fishy

I had the opportunity to test a pattern for Lorna @ Sew Fresh Quilts.  She has the most adorable animal patterns.  Kissy Fishy is one of Lorna's newest patterns, and it's so much fun.

I made a smaller version of Lorna's original pattern.  I made six fish using Kona Capri, Oasis, Tangerine, and Persimmon.


The fish are all pieced -- no paper piecing.


Lorna's instructions are always easy to follow, and she provides great photos.


Wavy line quilting to mimic water, with a pieced binding.


I love this pattern and will definitely make it again.


Some crazy butterflies for the back because the colours matched the front.


The pattern is now available in Lorna's shop here.
