Design Challenge: A Fish from One Commercial Fabric

In an effort to explore some of Susan Carlson's techniques, we decided to do a fish-from-one-commercial fabric as the design exercise due at yesterday's meeting.  See Figures 1-14 below.  Of Note:  The quilt Nancy's fish is displayed on is a wholecloth quilt by Mary Ann Littlejohn (Fig. 2).  Christine used Strawberry Shortcake fabric for her fish then stepped out of the box adding thread to enhance the overall design (Fig. 9).  Melissa's daughter, Katie, did a mixed-fabric fish (Fig. 14).

The group decided to take the fish idea a step further, creating one out of a fabric we all agreed to use (Fig. 15). This will later be incorporated into small individual works which we hope will eventually be displayed as part of various fiber group exhibits.
