Father’s Day Gifts

June 2, 2008

I always have trouble finding just the right gift for my hubby, but this time I think I’ve found the ideal present. As a lifelong lover of the outdoors and avid fisherman how could he not like this salmon? It’s so easy to make and I fussy cut the batik fabric to mimic the shapes within the pattern. You can click on the photo to see what I mean. This is a www.quiltswithatwist.com pattern. I just traced the salmon onto fusible web, cut out all the designated pieces and then fused it to the black background fabric. My next step will be to do echo quilting and then make it into a pillow for him. This salmon is the second pattern I’ve made that Lisa Moore designed.

The first Quilts With a Twist pattern I attempted is her Orcas. Here is a picture of the Orcas that I need to quilt up and they will be ready to display. The Orcas have one extra step — the white fabric is cut and fused first, then the black is fused over that. This picture should clarify the process:
