Esme declared this a quilt for her fish, Bloop. Meet Bloop:
Who could not love that squishy fishy face? I’ve had this mini quilt in the works for awhile now but just needed that extra little kick-in-the-pants to get it done, which A Stitch in Dye is so graciously providing with Mini Quilt Monday (thank you, malka!).
So, mini quilt it is. The triangles are cut from a disappearing nine-patch that never quite made its way to the quilting table.
The binding is my all-time favorite binding fabric that adds that tiny touch of coral which every fish needs.
I wish I’d used a different color bobbin thread for the back. It’s a really light blue which is barely discernible, even up close. It just looks brash white (I need to consult my paint color chips for the perfect brash white description). Anyway, It’s too contrast-y for my liking.
But bloop is not picky (well, not with his quilts at least) so he will take it, overly contrast-y lines and all.
And I do realize that I'm a little premature with the whole Monday thing, but Brian and I are heading to this fantastical place, sans children, to celebrate our 7 year anniversary. Seven wonderful years, nary an itch to be had!
