    Trout Fish Quilts

    I have been 'experimenting' with designs for the quilts I will be making for the World Fly Fishing Championships to be held in our State in early December. These smaller quilts are the result of some of those designs. I have had a lot of fun making these quilts and have another few ready to be quilted. These completed quilts will be for sale at a market stall I am having at the Community Centre this coming weekend near our highlands fishing cabin. Thanks for looking.

    Great quilts. I have a cousin who loves his fishing, these would be great for his man cave. Did you design them or find the patterns?

    A Google search will bring up some great ideas which is what I did and then designed my quilts around some of those pics. I never follow a pattern, too restrictive LOL

    I love to fish--have all my long life...from banks, boats, in waders, etc. The "this big" brought such laughter, as I've heard so many of those tales. I've even used it for the ones that "got away". Love it!!
    You got talent, gal. I bet they are snatched up immediately.

    Wonderful for the fishing community. Your wall hangings are perfect and should sell out quickly. My DH is out fishing now. I told him we have to give some away or eat faster, our freezer is almost full! Nothing better than fresh trout, unless it is Wisconsin perch. Boy, I miss that.

    Hubby is a very keen fisherman and I have heard this mentioned many times too LOL Here's another quilt for the lady fishers.

    Got another question for you....how is the lettering done? Is that paint or are the letters cut out and if they are cut out how did you finish the edges?
    TIA
