Dip Net Fishing

A fellow artist challenged me to make a quilt of a guy fishing on the Kenai.
It’s salmon fishing season here in Alaska, so there have been lots of photos to inspire some quilts.
Since I can’t make just one quilt at a time, I created two dip net fishing quilts. Each is 12” x 9”.
As I was stitching these, I kept thinking about how to crete the nets. I looked into using netting I’ve saved from fruit packaging or netting from dressmaking supplies, but it all seemed wrong. Instead, I chose to stitch the netting free hand with black thread. I like how these turned out.
