New Quilt - Kissy Fishy

Lorna from Sew Fresh Quilts released several new patterns this summer, and one of my favourites is Kissy Fishy. I was lucky enough to be a pattern tester for her, and this has been such a fun project to sew.

I am finally using my favourite Kaffe Fassett Paperweight fabrics (that I pick up every time I visit the Hyggeligt booth at a quilt show) for the fish bodies, bright polka dot scraps for the faces, fins and tails, and different blues for the ocean background. It's so fun to try to find little 1" scraps to use for the fish eyes! 

These are all left facing fish, and the right facing fish blocks are all cut and ready to sew.
You can see Lorna's Kissy Fishy over at Sew Fresh Quilts, and you can get the pattern at her etsy store here.

These do look fun, and it appears that you have had a good time finding the perfect fabrics for each block.
The fussy cut circles are a nice effect in the eye-balls. : )
