Connie's Fishing Quilt

This is another fun quilt I sent out recently.  I don't do very much applique so I really appreciate just how much work it is.  This is a full view of Connie's quilt.

Here are some closeups so you can see all the fun details she added.

The frog in the corner with the grasses and lily pads.

And we have a turtle in the other corner.

A tree extends into the quilt from an upper corner.

And in the center they are fishing in the lake.

This is just one of the fish blocks.  I used a ray type quilting in the fish blocks.  In the background I used a free form lazy meander to resemble the wind or breeze.  All the applique was outlined in free form applique outlines.  The large blue border was quilted with soft piano keys.

Thanks for sharing another great quilt with me.

What a great little quilt! I love how the turtle, frog & etc seem to come right out of the border. Your quilting is gorgeousness. Have a super day!
