I’d Like to Be Under the Sea

Background

27/07/2008 - This wall hanging is made from cotton fabrics. It is hand appliqued, machine pieced and machine quilted. The work is embellished with beads, seashells and black pearls. It measures 30 X 30 inches/76 X 76 cm. I made this quilt for my newborn niece, Skyler, pictured in the second photo in a mermaid outfit. I designed the octopus myself and used printed fish and flowers from a variety of fabrics for the appliques. It is heavily machine-quilted, with flowers and leaves encircling the octopus to simulate an "Octopus' Garden". A real black pearl is hidden beneath each white scallop shell. .
