Fishy Business

This is the quilt I am working on except mine is a full size quilt. I
t will be 10 inch blocks with 6 blocks across and 7 blocks long, alternatin
g water block then fish. I plan on putting an inner 2 1/2 inch border and
5 1/2 inch outer border. My fish will be appliqued onto a solid color wate
r material and will cut it 11 inch squares for the applique and then square
it off when done to 10 inches. In the past I have had problems with shrink
age from applique, so this solves that problem. I am also using a differen
t bigger fish. My fish will be small calico prints with different color fin
s. Hope this inspires some of you to try it. My calico fish are exotic loo
king.

Hello Brian, Have to thank you again for helping me with my internet address. Glad we have you to help us gals. I don't know why my computer did not highlight the whole address but you do have to type it all in because of that. I will keep trying. Sandy$

I copied and pasted the address you provided into the address bar of google chrome : " www.mccall's.quickquilts.com/fishy business" into the search bar in Google Chrome, and while it did not take me directly to "Did you mean: www.mccall's.quick quilts.com/fishy business" and then gave a list of results that consisted of: 1 Link to a genral page for subscribing to McCalls Quick Quilts Mag 2 The link I posted to the picture of the fishy business quilt 3 A pdf file with several templates for applique, including the fishy business applique. Those were just the first 3 results, it gave a bunch of other results that I did not look at, but perhaps your address is actually a better one than mine was.
