    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.

    Good job. I like both sides. He will need to be taken fishing in order to become a fisherman.

    AGH!
    I am trying to get this washed and dried. I just checked the washer and it isn't spinning the water out. I have reset it 3 times....If I stick the quilt in the dryer as wet as it is, it will take all night to dry. Hope there isn't something seriously wrong with my washer! We might get a chance to meet Cooper this weekend so I need it ready to go.

    Delivered the quilt last night and met the baby. The family LOVED the quilt. Mom understands the work involved so that is a bonus too. Great-Nephew is a Doll!
