Fish Block Two 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 square, and four triangles (that make up the fins), plus a square and two triangles of water fabric. The outer square is made up of 2 large plain triangles, and two striped triangles (the fish is swimming by a weed in the water).
Measures 8.5" x 8.5"
