I find it incredible that such a beautiful fish can be so dangerous. When the Lion Fish appear, the small fish dart everywhere trying to get away from them.
I actually started this quilt at the beginning of the year just for some fun while my sewing machine was being repaired.
I was looking back at the photos of how I started it and sometimes it's amazing to see how I start and wonder how I ever got it done. Sometimes it's just persistence.
Here is a photo of me trying to replicate a cave.
It doesn't look like a very promising start does it? I actually painted over the background water fabric because the original fabric had too many colour variations and wasn't quite dark enough for deep in a cave.
Here I am trying to find the correct fabrics for the rocks. I must have made the fish first because I knew that they would be the focus of the quilt.

I enjoyed making this wall hanging, it size is 42" wide and 28" long.
Bye for now,
