Here is koi number two. I simply laid tracing paper over koi #1 and used a sharpie to outline the shaoe. Next, cut out the shape, flipped it and placed it. Then using my chalk mechanical pen drew the koi onto the material.
I am Iin love with this process and the way the fish both pop and recede in the stitching!
You can see the full size here.
Here is the larger full size. (Quilt is folded in half)
Not the best lighting but last night I finished this top. Can't wait to get some white batting & get it quilted!
That's it for now. I'm off to do a trunk show in Laguna for the Crazy Quilters!
Wish me luck!
