Sleeping with the Fishes
That's the unofficial title of this quilt. The official title is "Swimming in Circles." To the right are the three main fabrics. There's also a mottled dark teal I used for the inner border. This is another Disappearing Nine-Patch pattern. I was going through my fabrics and found a few that wanted to be used. This poppy-red fabric screamed to be let out. Then the circles (which I purchsed in Columbus) wanted to play, too. The fish fabric has been sitting out, catching my eye for so long. Since both had the poppy color, how could I say no? When I was done, there was enough yardage left in the poppy to make the back. Stashbuster Alert! I used up all of these fabrics for this quilt--a total of five yards. I also dug into the scrap bin to put some stuff together for the back. If I finish that, I'll show ya!
