Fish & Chips

I finished binding the quilt this afternoon (still need to remove tacking threads and add a hanging sleeve this evening). Click the photo to see it at a larger size.

Cat, salt shaker, vinegar bottle & mushy peas tub all have a bit of extra wadding/machine trapunto, as do the fish & chips.

The pop bottle is based on my recollections of the very distinctive Lowcocks bottles that used to be sold on Teesside in the early 1970s. They were pressed glass, with a stopper that screwed down into the neck and very heavy - 3d if you returned one I think.

Batiks have so many designs that look like 50s laminates, batter etc. Even the border batik has fish bones! The "Kitty Chronicle" newspaper was a real find.
