This is the first applique quilt I have done. I hand stitched each fish on the quilt.
I love the colors, it reminds me of Hawaii, the best place on Earth. These colors
remind me of the color of water there. I love the ocean

I love applique, and you should be proud of this one. It is gorgeous! I love the background how it does look like the ocean. You did a great job. Where did you get the pattern? You did a lovely job! I love cross stitch too, so we have that in common too. It is wonderful meeting you through the Quilt Festival.
