First Finish Fishy Friends

Thank goodness!!!!! I finally have a finish for 2012!!!!! Fishy Friends was completed on Saturday and I was also able to finish Darth Vader's poorly constructed cape collar on Sunday. It was a very happy weekend of sewing for me:o)

This is also the first quilt that was completely made with Aurifil thread. I am completely lovin this thread. 




The back has a whole small sea of those cute guys!



The front  is simple lines so the wonky fish will be the highlight { that is my hope anyway}

I did a randomish diagonal grid for boyish fun. The binding is machine sewn.

I love Bjorn :o)
