I started this journal ([personal profile] quiltyjela ) a while back so I could talk about the process of my quilts. I'm now working on a quilt and remembered that I should post here.

This quilt started with a panel of "fish printed" starfish that someone left at my house after we did our fish printing project. I saw it and immediately knew that I wanted to make this into a quilt for my daughter's best friend.

My first idea was to do the traditional pattern "Ocean Waves" around the starfish and I thought it would be more scrappy than it turned out to be (with only one red and three blues). I really love the way this part of the quilt looks.

I then thought I would take a bunch of half square triangle squares and put them around various other fish prints I have lying around. But that just did not seem to be working. I also thought I needed border fabric to go around the Ocean Waves, so I took the whole shebang to the quilt store and got some thinky thoughts there.

I now have a panel of two frogs separated by Flying Geese and bordered with some of those half square triangle squares (but the frogs themselves have some of the new fabric bordering them because they were a little small). In any event, I have to add some more HSTSs to the bottom and top of this panel before I can proceed (and take a picture). I am excited to have spent almost an hour and a half in my sewing room this morning!
