These pictures really do not show how bright these colors are! iPads do not take the best pictures, but they sure are easy to use for blogging. I made one of these quilts several years ago and I had so much left over fabric, I made another one. I think I embroidered these sea creatures over a year and a half ago. I totally spaced on this UFO until I saw another fish baby quilt on-line the other day.
The embroidery designs were just coloring pages I found on-line and traced onto white Kona with a pencil. The fabric squares are cut 5inches, I bought a layer cake and cut it up. I use free coloring pages from the Internet all the time for designing baby quilts. I have made some with farm animals, Winnie the Pooh, woodland animals, etc.
Now, I need to pin it (yuck) and start the hand quilting (fun). I have never made a tutorial, but I was thinking of making one showing how I embroider, find the designs, trace, stitch, etc. Would anyone be interested? Let me know!
