I have been developing a design for a granny square with a north west Native American fish motif. I've tried some different options, starting first with a fish in the middle, and more of a free form type square. But it just seemed too busy and complicated.
Then I tried a more traditional way of making a square by starting in the round and emulating fish scales.
But the colors were wrong and it just didn't look like a native motif.
Then I decided to change to the traditional colors and designs.
And do a more traditional square, with the fish mouths pointing toward the center of the motif.
Once the square is done I will add buttons for eyes so the fish are more visible. The pattern isn't quite done, I need to make some adjustments so it will lie flatter and then square it up. I hope to have it up sometime next week.
