Aloha Fish are HERE!! aka Quilted Origami Series

a l o h a   f i s h

...the fish are here.  Well, actually, the fish were at Road to California.
And if you signed up for the class at
Luella's Quilt Basket
you received the pattern before anyone else, anywhere else.

We had a great class, and accomplished a lot.
Some people that have taken other Quilted Origami classes from me
said the fish are easier than the Aloha Shirts or Aloha Muu Muus.
That remains to be seen.
After all, they took the class!!
As a bonus, we discussed color theory, and even got some needle turn applique techniques in as well.
You never know what you're gonna get in one of my classes as a bonus.
Last time we were at Luella's we were dancing - hULa!!

In the Quilted Origami series of beyond the reef patterns, there are no raw edges when you're done with your model.
All that's left to do when you are done, is stitch it down to the background fabric.
And so it is with this little fish.
(well, except for the tail, which you needle turn under, then you're done)

The patterns are completed, and the quilt is completed, and the class is taught!!

We did have a lot of fun in class, tho - - I hope you'll consider taking a quilt shop class in your neighborhood.  Remember to support your local quilt shop and your quilt Guild, as they support YOU!!

Thanks for thinking of
