My hubbie and 6 year old grandson love going fishing. So this was created. Now I too love the sport and even go alone at times but the wall hanging was already done.

And a close up of a real fly hook (hook part clip)
I went outside and cut a long stick to hang it. Thought it added to the quilt.
Thanks so much for looking.

Wow! That is beautiful! I love how it feels like the fish pops out of the picture! The trees are adorable and their reflection in the water is awesome!

Ideally, I'd be covered in glue & face paint right now.

WOW! This is so neat! Is it okay if I copy it and do something similar for my dad for X-mas?

Love this quilt and your use of a real hook.  The design is amazing.  Did you design this yourself?  I like the use of the stick to hang it from.  Would also look neat hanging from a fishing pole. Cheesy

I love the stick! Smiley Smiley Smiley

How did you piece this, is it machine applique?

Thank you all. Yes it is machine appliqued and quilted, though I usually hand quilt. If I remember right the design came from a coloring book and I took it to Staples to blow up the image. Use it all you want doo_leroux.

Amazing piece of work.  I love the hook in the fish that's popping out of the pic, and the reflections in the water.  Beautiful!  Well done.

This is beautiful!  I've only done one applique and wasn't brave enough to use other objects.  Love the use of the real hook! Smiley
