Fishing Quilt Top Done

Fishing Quilt Top


For the past few days I've been working on Fishing, a fundraiser quilt for my daughter-in-law Laurie's Mothers of Preschoolers group at church. I'm hoping the quilt will have appeal as a Father's Day gift and bring a good bit of money in the raffle.

The center of the quilt is one large piece of fishing/outdoorsy themed fabric from stash, surrounded by a checkerboard border. A thin red border adds an accent and separates the dark green border from the same green that is in the checkerboard. I didn't want the greens to form a pattern that creates a dentil (toothlike) effect.

Fabric for the quilt back - nature themed, not too feminine, colors work well with quilt front

I'm doing a pillowcase finish for the quilt, and tonight I got the layers sewn together, leaving a space unsewn for turning. Tomorrow night I'll turn the quilt right side out, topstitch around the edges to close the opening. After that I'll tie dozens of knots with embroidery floss, and the quilt will be done.
