Batiks-Go-Retro Blog Hop

As most of my friends know, I love Batiks! I like their vibrant colours especially when using them for my stuffed starfish pincushions and hanging fish, (Pisci Fantasticus). Well, I just found Batiks-go-Retro Blog Hop which started today. It's interesting to see how different quilters are use this line of batiks.

Here's a tip:
When I designed these fish, I stitched on a tiny clear glass bead at the top of the fin. An invisible thread was then threaded through the bead, tied in a loop for easy hanging. No sewing required if thread breaks!

Pisci Fantasticus


  1. These are a whole lot more colourful than the real ones we tried to go and see today. We heard the salmon are running in Port Hope (in Ontario) and thought we'd take a drive to see them. We were led to believe there would be hundreds of them....we ended up seeing about a dozen and the water was so murky that you couldn't really tell they were salmon. Oh well - a nice day for a drive anyway.

  2. I love these fish. Too cool to poke with a pin!!
