As most of you know, I'm always wanting to try something new in my quilting journey. While working on my ever-growing list of projects (sound familiar? lol) I've been mulling over the idea of a whole-cloth quilt. Have any of you ever done one? If so, do you have any tips or advise? I've never done any needlepoint, and haven't done any handsewing since I was about 13 or so, more than 30 years ago. So, I was thinking a small project would be best, maybe a lap quilt about 40"x40". I also thought it would be more fun if I made the design myself. I know usually they're symmetrical, but I was thinking of doing varied sizes of goldfish, using dark yellow and gold threads on either a white or light blue solid piece of fabric. The picture is a rough sketch of how I might do it.
