Gone fishin'

I finally succumbed and started the Debbie Mumm anniversary sampler, like I needed another BOM or BOW or QAL  I think the answer to that is an unequivocal "Oh, heck, no." but there you are.  I've been saving the bi-monthly instructions and finally decided to go for it, and am entranced by the lovely pieced blocks she has created.  Last night, I put together these two fish blocks (which were not paper pieced, by the way):

They are just adorable!  After the quilt is assembled buttons will be added for eyes, and hopefully quilting will accentuate the scaly areas.  

Back to piecing - I've done apple blocks and house blocks, moon and star, log cabin and heart blocks, and now I have two cat blocks to do.

I love Debbie Mumm projects but keep forgetting to check for new ones. Thanks for the reminder.

Your fish are cute.

While cleaning/purging/sorting I found an old Pam Bono pattern (These fish remind me of Pam Bono) that I have wanted to do FOREVER!
