TGIFF - Coastal Pouch Swap

My quilt guild, Maritime Modern Quilt Guild, did a pouch swap with the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild.  The theme was coastal -- we're on the east coast of Canada and Vancouver on the west coast. 

I choose the Inside-Outside Pouch by Aneela Hoey.  My first version of this pouch was made at Sewtopia Seattle in November 2019.

I turned these 2.5-inch HSTs into fish.  Fish and fishing are important to both coasts of Canada.

I paired the front and back fish panels with some Island Batik fabrics.

A great turtle and seaweed batik for the inside.

I hoped that the vinyl on the front would make it seem like the fish was in a fishbowl.
