Fish Tales Quilt Block ....

Welcome to another day with Hey Grandma!

So, here is the Fish Tales block ... I don't think I would really enjoy making a whole quilt out of the block, but I do have to say it was an intriguing one to make.

For those who have been following, my inspiration for this sampler quilt comes from the 2009/2010 Winter Edition of the McCalls Quilting Magazine. You can obtain a back issue:

I have 6 more blocks to go. Then I need to make the filler blocks which are Sawtooth, Flying Geese, Economy, Pinwheels and Hourglass squares. These various blocks fit together with the main blocks to create a Sampler Quilt that is geometric and allows the eye to pass over the quilt with random amazement ... OK, maybe that sounds a bit dramatic, but you'll see what I mean!
