11 Little Fishes Swimming in rows

So here are my little fishes. Outlined in heavy 40 cotton thread with silver thread in the bobbin. Glittery fabric under the grey sheer organza and then machine quilted using a circular motion in black for the eyes and a silver thread for the body. I didnt under apply fabric to the tails and fins. I used a straight backward and forward stitch on the head and underbelly and an open scribble stitch on the body to give the effect of scales. The side fins are some long sort of sequins that I just applied using a zigzag stitch over the sequins as they did not like the machine needle trying to go through them. I will probably only use the silver ones in my design. Next step is to cut them out and lightly pad the body area.
