Hunter's Star

So remember these blocks from the other day???

So DD thought if you used a water colored bckground fabric and assorted colors for the opposite block parts you can make fishes!
I left them all orange. I made a quilt kinda like this for hubby's aunt and uncle that they have on their bed at the shore house. I think DD has one of the blocks that I made because I made too many in her sampler quilt.

She needs me to make a baby blanket for her to give to a school mate that's having a boy this fall. I'm trying to explain that buttons are not the thing to put on a quilt for a baby. I might stamp the eyes because I don't think that I want to applique a couple dozen small circles for the eyes

Great idea!!! How about "french knots" for the eyes?

The fish are a great idea! Are you watching the game this afternoon?

What a great idea. I love the thought of stamping the eye or even using sharpie! Very cool.

Love the Hunter's Star block ... didn't see it as fish until you showed the other picture!! Will make a great baby quilt, but you're right not to use buttons on it. I've be tempted to use fabric marker and just draw in the eyes :)

ooo.. I saw this pattern somewhere.. something I got in the mail, but not exactly like this. I thought it was so clever! Can't wait to see how it turns out.
