    thanks for the nice comments everyone.

    i have used patterns in the past like the log cabin.

    this quilt wasn't from a pattern. i was looking to do something more manly in design that had a cabin or lodge feel to it and hinted towards hunting/fishing.

    i used plaids and then thought this type of piecing would look like arrows and the free motion was my attempt at flowing water - i was trying to stay in the hunting/fishing kinda thing.
