Calling all fishermen?

I am starting to clear out my quilt studio so I can make some changes in how it is set up. This room needs so attention so it can once again be the haven it was to me before I moved rooms. It means going through a lot of items to organize things once again. I am selling a number of items online but something I came across today made me decide to offer it here on my blog to someone who would like it and put it to use.

Years ago, I purchased this fabric and pattern to make a medallion quilt for my brother Bill. He has a collection of duck decoys that he painted himself and I thought the quilt would look really nice in his house along with a series of stitched duck pillows. Sorry but I don't have photos of any of the things I made him as it was long before the age of internet and blogging.

I have come across the panel and fabrics that were left over after making the quilt. There is enough fabric here to make another small wallhanging, backpak or tote bag or anything your imagination desires. I would love to know this excess fabric is being used but don't have anyone in my family to make such a quilt for. Any ladies out there with a fisherman in the family that would be interested in this fabric? I would love to send it to you so you can make use of it. Just leave me a comment with your email address or use the email on my profile page. I will get this in the mail to you right away.

On Wednesday (July 15th), the next Primitive Ornament will be online so if you have any photos to share of previous ornaments, please email me before Wednesday.

Heidi, sadly I dont have any fishermen in the family!
I'm having a small giveaway to mark my 300th post, do look in.

My grown-up son is a fisherman, and as I am making a quilt for my daughter (Geese in a pond), he has been hinting about wanting/needing a quilt himself. I could put your fisherman pieces to good use! And he would be so surprised... If I'm the lucky one, you can reach me thru my email at either one of my blogs...

Hi Heidi, My DSIL is a fisherman and the fabric would make him a nice throw if I was lucky enough to win the fabric.

Hope they are dealing wih the damp in your kitchen.

Love Hazel (UK)

How generous and kind of you! No fisherpeople in this family, though. ;)

You are so kind to offer the material to your blogging friends. No fishermen in my family.

I have seen the quilt you made for Bill
of course and he loves it. It is really nice of you to offer the fabric to a lucky winner.
Love you, Mom

How generous of you to offer to pass these along! My husband and son both love to fish!

I may have to use this idea and pass on some of the fabrics that I won't get to use after having them laying around for years.
