I worked on my wild fish tonight! This is a memorial for my grandfather who died last year. He was an avid fisherman. He also had a work shed full of old rusted bits and bobs, that;s what I used for the fabric! A week, or so ago, I posted a picture of the start of the fish. Tonight I finished the fussy cutting and fusing. I fused the whole fish to a piece of fabric I dyed this summer. The borders were "rusted" this summer also. That was really hard to sew through! Parts of the fabric have a thicker coating that others.
The color combination is unusual, but I think it works. Hopefully I will start quilting it tomorrow.
9/25- Note to self: When free motion quilting use a "jeans" needle it helps with the crazy tension that is the bain of my existence!
