Item details

Fishy Nine-Patch is a stylized pictorial design that is symmetrical to one diagonal. The block measures 9 inches square when finished. The fish eye is created by sewing a small button onto each fish in the finished quilt.

Fishy Nine-Patch is simple enough for someone with only basic quilting skills to construct very easily. This two-value design is well suited to scrap quilts, but it’s especially effective using one watery background fabric and a single, unique fabric for each fish, as demonstrated in the sample quilt in the first product image. Geometric prints and irregular stripes work very well with this approach.

This 3-page PDF pattern includes many colored diagrams, detailed instructions, color placement tips and a chart of pieces to cut for each Fishy Nine-Patch block—everything you need to successfully create a beautiful quilt project with your own special touch!

When you purchase this pattern, you will also receive my free 5-page PDF tool for calculating yardage, shown in the last product image. The Yardage Calculator will not only guide you in determining your yardage requirements, but it will also guide you in cutting pieces for your quilt from strips. You can use this tool with any quilt pattern, not just with my designs.
