Fish for E's Bible quilt

I've had the fabrics and instructions set aside in the envelope for a couple of weeks.  It looked pretty challenging, so I decided to wait for the school year to end to tackle it.  I used the templates and cut all the pieces before starting to sew. Truthfully, I was really intimidated by all the Y-seams.  In the end, I was really pleased with how it came together...even though it ended up bigger than the standard 12.5 inch block.  

**Bonus - the reddish-orange pattern of the batik looks like Japanese koi.
