An old fish quilt



The quilt is old, not the fish. (attempt at humor). It is a Japanese fish print (gyotaku) where you paint the fish then use it as a stamp. This was a rubber fish. I made this about 10 years ago all done in free motion sketching with metallic threads. I like the fish but then what do you do with it??


I have made a quilted vessel and I will probably use it to house my long paint brushed. I'm going to use a large tomato can for rigidity.
