I have a thing for tessellations and even own a copy of Jinny Beyer’s book Designing Tessellations : The Secrets of Interlocking Patterns. It’s well written and will help you create your own. If that’s not your thing, you can buy a tessellation pattern like the one I found on Craftsy. Created by Piece by Number, here’s a section of her product description:

 A tessellation is a design where a shape (like this cute paper pieced fish) can be repeated and interlocked like a puzzle, with no spaces between the shapes. This pattern will show you how to make a quilt of any size covered in these little fish. A great design for using up lots of colorful scraps!

The PDF Tessellating Fish paper pieced quilt pattern contains clearly labeled pattern sections & instructions to sew the design in a range of sizes. The pattern pieces as given make a 3″ x 5-3/4″ (7.6 x 14.6 cm) fish; for other sizes, use the handy percentages chart to enlarge or reduce the pattern to your desired size.
