Fish Quilt Finished!


No fooling!

Front and back it is full of fishes.

I could not have done it without you.

Thanks to everyone who sent squares…

or larger pieces…

or prayers. Lots of prayers.

In all 51 people contributed fabric and labor to this project:  Arizona, Michigan, Florida, California, Montana, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia, Washington, Illinois, Massachusetts  Tennessee, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, Hawaii, Utah, Maryland, New York, Oregon, New Mexico, Nebraska, Colorado, Idaho, and international help from England, Canada and Israel.

It will be delivered accompanied by this card, all your loving notes and wrapped in this special pillowcase (Thanks, Karin).

That Fisher boy is a wonderful child and sure to love his fishy quilt.

  1. Glad to have been a part of this from the beginning. It was fun to open up the mailbox and see where the newest fabric addition was coming from. Many thanks to all you people out there who took time to care about one little fish in a sea of many who struggle with similar maladies! Our prayers are daily with him, and with you, for giving of yourselves so generously. Thanks- Husband and Uncle Bill

  2. What an awesome quilt, Deanna! I know this will help Fisher with everything he is going through! I don’t think anything brings more comfort to a person than a quilt made with love does! Hugs to you, Fisher, and his family! 🙂

  3. The green is a perfect color for the sashing. And I join the chorus who like the way you arranged by value. And a pieced back that is every bit as good looking as the front! WTG.
