More fish and a giveaway announcement


This lovely lady still needs fins, but I couldn't resist sharing her portrait.  I now have four and 3/4 fish completed.  I need to have 12 for the swap.  They are really fun to make, but they do take me a long time to put together.  Here is the one I finished today.


My other big project for today was the Lotta Jansdotter challenge.  I got the top put together and am trying to decide about a border. 


Here are the details of the elements squares.

These were fun to make and I think they really improve the look of the quilt.  These were done after a family conference about the quilt.  Quilt by committee.  You have to love it.
Finally, I am guest blogging at Confessions of a Fabric Addict tomorrow and announcing a fun fabric giveaway back here.  Hope you visit over at Sarah's great blog and come back here to enter into the drawing.
Joyful quilting, everyone.

Hi
Being part of the committee was easy compared to interpting our comments and making them a reality. You did a great job!

Beautiful work you're doing. I'm also working on My Farmer's Wife. Where did you get the patterns for the fish and which swap group are you participating in?
