3-D stuffed Fish Quilted Wall Hanging

This fish has been "caught" by Sylvain in my recent blog Give Away on Lynn-Getting My Feet Wet Blog.
I had great fun yesterday constructing this 18" stuffed fish! I used cotton fabrics left over from my Gold Mountain Wall Hanging Quilt seen below(some hand dyed) and ribbons with lots of frayed edges and sewed them on thick felt with a felt backing.
Here it is in it's "Look what I caught!" position!Here it looks like it is swimming in a stream (sort of, use your imagination)!

Ribbons swim behind him.

Layers of ribbons made his eye and nostril. Do fish have nostrils? LOL
And look closely it is smiling!

I love that one piece of fabric in this and my Gold Mountain Quilt below
is from my very first ever quilting class sampler. (circa 2007).

Wait till you see what I am working on now!

Great fish! I love your fabrics. I want to branch out more to the type of embellishments you have done on this one.
