I made this little quilt about a month ago, but forgot to blog about it in the secret-ness of it, and then the craziness that was March (mostly my daughter's birthday, then my husband's grandpa died, and a two weeks later his grandma on the other side passed). Anyway, I joined an awesome Birthday Swap with some other bloggers, and this little quilt was made for Julie's birthday back in February.
The pattern is from More Quilts from the Quilt Maker's Gift--although if you make it, know there is a mistake and the Fish unit 2 reversed is not reversed and you have to use the back of that pattern to get the right piece!
Julie mentioned not really liking batiks, but I couldn't get the purple-blue fabric I had out of my head--it just seemed so perfect for the watery areas! Thankfully she liked the sneak peak pictures I posted on instagram (I'm @quiltsnfeathers). I've wanted to make this quilt block for a while, and thought it'd be perfect for someone that enjoyed a lot of outdoorsy stuff.
I quilted it using Aurifil 50wt in #5005 (blue), #2130 (orange), and #1135 (yellow).
