Frolicking Flying Fishes!

This is another project based on the book "Free-Style Quilts" by Susan Carlson. The vision for this wall hanging is one of Flying Fish jumping through a beautiful star-filled tropical night-time sky.  

I'll see if I can get a better photo, but this shows the full wall hanging with the stylized borders that my husband drew out.  I didn't execute them exactly as he wanted them, which is probably why it looks a little odd.  I'm hoping it grows on me.  I still love the flying fish!

Here is the original of my flying fishies.

...and a detail photo of how I quilted him.


The smallest of the flying fishes.

The middle sized fish...

...and a close up for detail.

To see how this project evolved, I have two pages of "history" of this design.  ==>
