Collared Butterfly Fish

 Today I swore I was taking time out of the day to make up my school of
Collared Butterfly fish to add to my Fish Piece.  I began with a spotted fabric where I used the right side for the body and the wrong side for the top and bottom fins.  Then I began adding all the tiny details of color.

 Since I needed a group of seven fish I worked on each detail at a time on each one of them.  While I am doing this I do not worry if a piece hangs out off the body a bit as when they are finished a trim around the entire fish.

Here they are added in.  Aren't they beautiful.  Love the grey and yellow of this group.   Now for a break as that is tedious detailed work.  I have a few more to add and then the quilting begins.

They really are lovely. The production line of making them made me chuckle but how else are you going to get a school of fish completed? LOL!
