Well, fish number one all fused together. I love this new appliqué mat I purchased in October at a quilt show. Fusamat by Sharon Bradley. You can lay it over your appliqué pattern and see through it to assist with placement of pieces.
And a second one done and placed on the background. I have finished all six appliqués, placed them on their backgrounds and I am ready to start quilting them. Yes, every one of them is a different combination of fabric. So fun! I know he will love them.
