Fishing Pillowcases + Bear Creek Giveaway

Fishing Pillow Cases, Cluck Cluck Sew

My boys are obsessed with fishing.  Obsessed might not even be a strong enough word…they spend all of their allowance on fishing lures and organize them daily and ask me 103839 times a day when we can go fishing. Oiy.

So when I stumbled upon this awesome fishing lure fabric at Bear Creek Quilting Co. I snatched it up for pillowcases.

It’s no easy feat to find fishing/outdoorsy fabric…but they have a great selection of prints like this that are hard to find in other shops, plus modern fabric too.

Sophie’s Quilt

This quilt has been sitting on Sophie’s bed for a couple of months and has already been used, loved, and washed during the warm summer.

I backed it with minky fabric, and Kathy quilted it for me with a lovely loose flower pattern so it’s still really soft and hangs nicely.

I machine bound it and labeled it with my super professional (and kind of embarrassing!)labeling method.   I will say that my boys quilts (here and here) that I labeled this way have been washed about a 1000 times and the labels look good as new!

I posted more about this top and the measurements for making the blocks in this post.
