Rachel Meyer, block 9

I have finally finished another block for my interpretation of the Rachel Meyer quilt. There are 12 different 18" blocks, a large center block and appliqued border so I still have a ways to go but I feel like I am 1/2 way there now. This is the fish block that I used when I discussed my technique to prep blocks. Still not in love with that large fish but am happy with the finished block.

 

Thanks, for all the encouragement when I post these blocks. It really helps to keep me motivated to continue!

Gosh, Heather--this is so lovely; I am still just such a beginner with my little Pomegranates! But, I am getting a bit better with my template prep and stitching. I like the fact that it is S L O W work. Very relaxing--once i remember to put my shoulders DOWN!! LOL Hugs, Julierose

I like the wavy design fabric you used for the tail and fin on the fish. I am one of those followers on your progress. The blocks look oh so good.

That's quite a fish. I like how you gave the fins movement with the zig zag fabric. Lovely!

There is no denying that fish is weird. I wonder what Rachel was thinking when she did it. I expect it was something her husband caught and the biggest catfish she had ever seen or somesuch.... I love how with each block you are giving it your identity. Keep them coming, it will be wonderful.

I think it's really fun to see a fish in a block. It's a beautiful setting with the circle of flowers and the bird.
