Blogger's Quilt Festival


Hi folks...this is a special time of year; where we, as quilters all get together to show off our work and appreciate each other. I am entering this quilt in the applique is machine applique.
This quilt measure 82x102 inches; is cotton fabric with poly batt for hand quilting.
The story behind this quilt: a family stopped by my home last summer(2012) where I sell my quilts. They were from Fort McMurray, Canada. They wanted something as a souvenier from the; commissioned me to make a quilt for them. Now this is not that one...they ordered a 'Bluenose'; which can be seen on one of my blog posts. This particular quilt came along later; about the time they received the first one in the mail.  This one is a fishing theme quilt. I thought about it for a little while; and said I would make it for them.  It was a fun experience for me...and they loved it as much; if not more than the 'Bluenose' all is good.  Here is the fishing theme quilt I called 'Gone Fishin'.

We have the Sockeye Salmon, Halibut, Salmon and Brook Trout down the center. With a fly rod, regular fishing rod and the deep sea fishing rod across the top.  The crewel baskets  and nets in the bottom corners.
In the next corners are hooks with worms on them....the fishermen at the bottom....and loons in the outside corners. It is machine pieced, machine appliqued, and hand quilted by me.

A close up for you.....I hope you enjoyed this post and my quilt. I thank Amy for hosting this Festival for all of please visit everyone entering and vote. I would love your vote, but vote for your favorite. And good luck and congrats to all of you entering. Have a fun time for sure!!!
