Wow, after writing this quilting article I am seeing little fishes in my eyes, fish everywhere.  Looks like Fish-themed quilt patterns are very popular and somewhat of a traditional design.

Fish are generally made up of triangles, and we all know triangles are made from a basic fabric square, so fish quilts are a great quilt for those who are starting out at quilt making but looking to step up the skills to something a little more complicated than squares. Utilizing the geometric look of triangles the half-square triangles are combined to make cute fish.

Lots of these fish quilt patterns are all straight-cut lines, easy to block, and easy to piece.
