Yesterday I posted a little quilt done for a Japanese Garden exhibit. I wasn't thrilled with the finished product so today I did this one. I photographed the fish statue when I was in Japan in October. See the original below. I thought the background was too busy so I cut it away. I used a watery fabric that shaded from very dark to light blue and use three different sections. The red strips are reminiscent of Tori gates, although the real ones have no bottom bar and more bars at the top. It's only 8" x 8". I think I'm going to face it or maybe bind it in the same fabric.
