In March, we celebrate another birthday in the family. My nephew is an athlete and an outdoorsman, all balanced with a sensitive spirit. A couple of years ago for school, my nephew had to do a 3 min speech on a subject that he was passionate about, for him, it was and still is fishing. He told us about ice fishing and fishing at Deschambault lake. He spoke about all the different types of fish in Northern Saskatchewan. He knows fishing and loves to be outdoors.
When it came time to make a quilt for him I knew a sports theme would be perfect. I had lots of fun with this one, making the appliques and thinking about the different sports that he enjoys. Hockey season is over this year for him, but once the snow clears, the baseball glove and bat will emerge.
