    This is a great quilt!

    The perfect "man" quilt! For one that loves to fish anyway.

    All of the blue water prints are lovely and mix well together.

    I decided to quilt a water design near all of boats and fish in the water scene fabric. I outlined some key elements like fish, birds ect.

    I added fishing lines to the poles, clouds, and texture in all the other areas.

    I used warm and white batting.

    I quilted this on my 26 inch INNOVA.

    Thanks for looking.

    Hubby will say a sunny day in the islands where he usually goes fishing but we do live in Florida.

    Definitely a man's quilt. Love the color and the quilting is so beautiful. It brings out the detail, especially the clouds in the sky.

    It was really easy. I will probably make another one for my BIL. I have the fabric but want to get some others done first.

    Oh, that is a great quilt. Obviously the quilter who created the top put alot of love into it. As always your quilting really highlights and brings out all the best points in a quilt's top.

    I am starting the very same quilt this weekend. I am donating it for a fundraiser. Havasu is very big on fishing so I thought why not appeal to the men for a change. Hope mine turns out as good as yours.
