I am slowly making progress on the tribal shark quilt I started months ago for my husband Jesse. Jesse likes to call this quilt “Shark Quilt Ooh Ha Ha!” – to be sung like the shark bait ooh ha ha! scene from Finding Nemo – if you haven’t seen it here is a clip of the scene where he gets the name. I kind of love that he named it that and we giggle about the name every time we say it.
When I had last shown progress on this quilt I had just finished the shark and was deciding what to do next. I decided the first border should be an angled border with various blacks, greys and blues to add a little more variety into the quilt and then I was unsure again.
Since the quilt is for Jesse I asked him what he wanted for the quilt and he suggested that he would like a tribal barbed wire border. I knew it would be a ton of work but no one deserves a quilt with so much time put into it more than him so I agreed and proceeded on the border.
I am currently finished with almost three of the four borders (minus the corners) and already have the rest of the quilt planned out. Hopefully I will have the rest of the border appliqued in the next few weeks and can finish the quilt.
Thanks for reading!
