I finally finished this fishing quilt for my Uncle Bob-his 93rd birthday is Oct 2nd!! His favorite past time when he was still able was to go fishing in the lake. It is hand-quilted, and I made a matching pillow case which I will put the quilt in to give it to him. Since my dad died when I was only 18, he has always been there for me-he even walked me down the isle when I got married nearly 36 years ago! I am SO glad this is done, I was struggling because it wasn't my favorite fabric (it was picked for him) and I REALLY want to start on my BOW TUCKS!!! I leave for Vanuatu again in 2 weeks, so I want to get a couple done before I leave!

I just washed it so it is a little wrinkled, but so soft!

the label I put on the back

So cute and I really think the label fits!

Congrats and hope your Uncle Bob enjoys it for many years to come.

Thanks! He is pretty cripled up, needs his walker to get around, and can't be on his feet too long. I also made him a walker caddy that I sewed on fish and his name -using the same color scheme

I'm sure he will appreciate it, sounds like he is a wonderful man worthy of all your hard work. It's a great quilt!

You did a beautiful job on both piecing and the quilting, love the label.

JIll..this is so fabulous! What a great gift! He will love it! Most important he will find comfort with it. I hope you have a safe trip back to Vanuatu.
