Fishing camping quilt version number 2

Yes you have seen this quilt before!  This is the second quilt using the same fabric and pattern (that seems to be a theme for me this year) but I had to use a solid green from my stash for the sashing. 
Pattern by Elaine Theriault, published in Quilts and More magazine Spring 2017.
I had to also piece a backing but still very happy to make two teenager sized quilts out of this original purchase.  There is a little collection of  scraps, which hopefully I can stretch out to a quilt in a different pattern for a smaller child.  I quilted this one myself, and was very boring and went for straight lines, because that is what I feel most comfortable doing. I can do some basic FMQ, but I lost my nerve just picking a thread colour for this quilt, so stuck with straight lines and a different thread colour to match each block.
Very happy with this finished quilt and that the charity pile to give away is growing! 
Happy quilting Sue. 


  1. You certainly have got plenty of mileage from that magazine!!
    Lovely quilts.

  2. No doubt whoever receives that pretty quilt will love it! ---"Love"

  3. Why mess with a good thing. In this case a great simple pattern, and fun fabrics.

  4. You have been amazingly productive during the isolation.

  5. Great job! You will be making some boys very happy.
    And I find choosing a thread color for an all-over design to be really a touch decision.
