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.

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

  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.
