Simply Charming FUN Preview #1

In honor of the release of Simply Charming FUN, I have decided to show some of the projects from the book as a preview. This is the rest of the quilt from the cover. It is called Charming Little Fish. My friend, Michelle Hansen sewed this quilt. She was the first person I thought of to make this because I know she loves batiks. Batiks are perfect for this quilt. It makes it look like an ocean in the tropics.

This would also be a great scrap quilt. I wonder what it would look like in some of the oceanic prints like Odyssea or Neptune. What about brighter ocean prints like Snorkel by Cosmo Cricket for Andover Fabrics? Or what about a realistic ocean print? Lots of fun ideas.

Michelle had several requests for this quilt as she was making it. The little fish just fly (or swim) together.
