Fish quilt pattern helps keep the blanket clean and creates an elegant look for the bedroom decor. Often the blanket clings or slides inside the lid. A lid that matches the canvas in size for a correct fit can reduce the risk of shifting. A cotton cover over a cotton-covered blanket can offer less displacement than some synthetic materials. Keeping a blanket in place can only require simple hand sewing skills.


Turn the fish quilt pattern in and out to display the four corners. Cut about 12 inches of monofilament wire for each corner, with scissors. Thread a length of monofilament through a hand sieve and tie the two ends. Insert the needle into a corner of the fabric and pull out the thread. Insert the needle near the first insertion point to form a loop. The eyelets can be about one inch in diameter. For additional strength repeat one or more times for additional loops.
