    Large Mouth Bass in Friendship Stars.....
    Doesn't that make them Star Fish? Kidding!!!

    I have been working on this for our great-nephew Cooper who was born on March 11th. Yesterday was a furlough day at work so I was able to spend the whole day quilting and attaching the binding.

    Cooper had better like fishing if he is going to fit in with the guys in this family. :lol:

    I didn't have any flannel large enough to fit the back and I wanted something fun. The boat and mast is left over fabric from my "bookcase" quilt , the sky and sail is flannel and the fish fabric is what I fussy cut for the front.

    I used warm and natural batting so it will crinkle after I get it washed. Final size is 45"x45" unwashed.

    Hope they like it! You too! I'm glad to get it done! One less UFO!

    What a cute quilt. I really like the sailboat on the front...er back..!! Make sure to add a label. You might want to name the boat including Cooper's name! along with his birthdate.

    This is a very cute, possibly reversable quilt.
