Q is for FISH QUILT

It doesn't look like I might finish this whole challenge as we're leaving in a day to go to Virginia for Memorial Day and beyond so I will be living on laptop. However, this wonderful quilt which I do plan to make during my lifetime is something that I would have posted on Pirate Knitting, challenge or not. The pattern is as usual on RAVELRY and over 500 people have done this quilt and posted pictures of it and this something to see. I will post a few here and then link to the pattern below:



You knit up the little fish according to the PATTERN which makes a nice carry with you project. It also makes a nice project for items in your yarn stash as many people did on Ravelry. The pain in the neck part. of course, is then sewing them all together to make the quilt. I think sewing a couple of strips at a time is better than leaving all the fish to sew together at a time. It makes the task less daunting and what a pretty quilt. Some people also made them into pillows and other things. Check out the pics on Ravelry.

  1. That is quite the cute quilt. I will admit, I would have no patience to do something like that. My grandma did not pass me her quilting skills.
