Something Fishy Finished

I finished my little Fishy quilt, quilted and bound, to participate in Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal (OMG). 
Backed with a yellow and orange flannel dot. 
I used a pantograph called Aqua Flame by Hermione Agee and an affinity variegated thread called Carolina. 
Happy to have this little quilt completed. 
I love to fish, catching one is a bonus.

Owen’s Birthday

Today is my grandson’s birthday and I’m posting last year’s birthday gift and project. He loves running shoes, and he was hoping for a pair of Converse Comme des Garçons PLAY collab (collaboration) running shoes.  I was able to find a pair of these cute shoes.  

The more I see them the more I think I’d like a pair as well.

In my stash I had a great piece of Running Shoe fabric, and thought this was the perfect opportunity to make a fun pillow case. 

I’m happy with the contrasting fabric I found for the cuff, also from my stash. 
Here’s Owen in a different pair of runners, a gift from Grandma Shelly.  They were excellent for the Hip-hop class I enrolled him in. 
Wishing my delightful grandson a Happy Birthday.
May life’s brightest joys illuminate your path, and may each day’s journey bring you closer to your dreams!

Something Fishy

Participating in Elm Street Quilts One Monthy Goal (OMG) for May my goal is to quilt and bind this little Fishy quilt. 
I took a silk screening class at Alberta University of theArts a couple of years ago and this is one of the pieces I screened.  I thought it would make a nice baby quilt and was able to find a complementary flannel for the back. 
I think I found an appropriate pantograph to quilt it with in my collection, drop by at the end of the month to see the completed quilt. 
Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.  What is your genius?
