Fish Block One is made up of a square within a square. The interior square contains the fish. The fish itself is made up of one large striped triangle, and two small triangles. Two small triangles and two larger triangles make up the water behind the fish. Four large triangles create the outer square.
Measures 8.5" x 8.5"


Pattern Pieces

Print out a copy of the overall layout so you'll know where each block goes.

NOTE ABOUT PRINTING: Be sure your printer is set to print at 100%. If "Shrink to fit" or "Fit to page" etc. is selected, YOUR PATTERN PIECES WILL NOT PRINT TO THE CORRECT SIZE. Every pattern page lists one or more dimensions. CHECK YOUR PRINTED PATTERN FOR ACCURACY OF SIZE.

NOTE: The instructions for the fish shown to the right are the same as for the fish in this wallhanging. The only difference is that the one in these instructions is made with purple fabric (rather than the gold shown above) and the nose piece is larger. The instructions remain the same.

6.  To create your A-B-C triangle, you can choose one of two methods.
You can cut out pieces A, B and C and stitch them together OR you can do the following:
Create striped fabric and then use the large pattern piece labeled "A-B-C" to cut out the large A-B-C triangle from the striped fabric. To create your fabric, cut the B strip to a size of 2.25" x 10". Cut strips A and C to be 10" long by 2" wide.
