PQ Season 7, Challenge 5: Through the Eyes of a Child

Don’t know what Project QUILTING (PQ) is? Check this out, Project QUILTING at Persimon Dreams.


The inspiration for this challenge was children’s art. I did a search for “children’s art” and it didn’t take but a couple of minutes to find just the piece I wanted to make into a quilt.
Here is the link to the source: Fish

I took a screen print of the inspirational fish also,

This bright, charming fish was painted with watercolors by Bronte, age 8, from Australia.  I had the fabrics and started by drawing a pattern similar to her picture. I decided to make a quilted pillow for my project.

It is about 12″ high by 16″ long.

  The back has an overlap that is hemmed and left open to insert the pillow form.

I think a little more practice with pillows is a good idea.
