Mark's Fly Fishing Quilt

Recently a good friend of mine was retiring, and his wonderful wife asked that instead of gifts, we all give him fly fishing flies.  I dug into my large stash and came out with some fly fishing fabric, and decided that would just have to do.

Now Mark and his dogs can snuggle and dream of fishing.

As you can see, there are a lot of fishing flies on the quilt, so I did play by the rules even if I did stretch them a little.  I'm sure Dawn will forgive me.

I hope Mark enjoys many years of retirement.  I can hardly wait for next spring when we can all get out to the lakes together.

Many sweet dreams under your quilt!


  1. What a wonderful "Man" quilt! It came out just fantastic. I'm sure it will get some wonderful lazy day use.

  2. What a grand idea, Linda! Very appropriate, to say the least!

  3. Love the quilt, and the fur baby is cute :):) hugs

  4. Love your blog with all the beautiful quilts and quilting. Great scenery.
