fishing





Andy and Seth went fishing this morning, giving me time to finish this crumb pieced top. The blocks are shirt parts and the sashings and borders are from stash. The blocks are four 6 1/2 inch squares put together into 12 inch finished blocks.
I anticipated their catch and bought some ringer rainbow trout.


They did catch and release two 4-inch bluegills.

I love that the blocks are made from shirts. I've kept bits and pieces of my children's clothing intending to make them quilts when they're older. This will give me about 15 years to finish the quilts, so they should get done :)

I really love this quilt. I have a bunch of homespuns in my stash. I'll remember this idea.

A very pretty place to fish I'd say even if they weren't biting. Love the new lil' quilt. It gives me great ideas for some of those MAM blocks . . . hmmmmm
