The blocks finish at 10" square. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the following sizes. . .

I used appliqué with fusible adhesive and Quilt As You Go to make a super easy quilt - almost all done on the machine. The pattern also includes links to videos teaching needle turn appliqué and machine appliqué with freezer paper, in case you prefer those methods.

What You Need+-
I used fabric from three different bundles for this quilt.
- The background blocks are Blue Batiks.
- My fish are coral reef fish made with Rainbow Brights fat quarter bundles, with some Little Stripes added for extra details. If you want to make freshwater fish, I recommend the Warm Neutrals fat quarter bundle.
- The backing is turquoise cuddle fleece.
