Almost matching quilts to give to two brothers that are avid fishermen,  The corner blocks are embroidered and customize but otherwise the quilts are identical.   The quilting pattern has fish and splashing water, perfect for these quilts.

This beautiful queen size quilt started out as a table runner and my customer had so much fun that she kept adding to it.   I used a variegated green and red thread and quilted holly and ivy.  While it won’t be on the table for Christmas dinner, it will be perfect for a bed.

Hand guided calm waters are the perfect design for this painted ladies quilt.  I spent quite a bit of time helping the piecer pick out a backing and when she picked up the bolt of red fabric, her eyes just lit up,  and I knew it was the one!
