        (1) 2 x 7 1/2"
        (1) 2 x 4"
        (1) 2 x 19 1/2"


Dark Blue: (1) 3 1/2 x 4"
           (1) 2 x 2"

                 (1) 2 x 2"

c) Stitch 2 x 19 1/2" strips of yellow and lighter blue together, then cut into (8) 2 x 3 1/2" rectangles and (1) 3 1/2 x 3 1/2" square. Set aside.





Assembly: Stitch together sections indicated by small gray arrows first, then stitch together according to the numbered arrows.



And it's a puffer fish! Or so I'm told. ;)
