Quilted


I did a simple quilting job even I couldn't screw up. I echo quilted around the fish and channel quilted the seams. I may or may not add some hand stitches but it is going on hold since I am going to go look for play fish to embellish with.
Susan will no longer be horrified!

I like the feeling of motion and the colors in this piece. Glad you resurrected it from the scap pile.

I like those little Mylar fish and, yes, it does have an underwater feel.

Thanks Judy and Norma.

Hello, my friend... I am sure this piece is a delight in person. Your simple quilting keeps the underwater feel and the fish in the focus.
I can see you adding some hand stitches to create a subtle line...
and when you get your other fish one.. the right ones, it will bring it to 'real life'... don't quit on it!
these can be the hardest, but perseverance pays.
Hugs

Sherryl, this is coming along quite nicely - love the simple quilting and I agree with Carole - a few hand stitches will be nice. Can't wait to see it finished.
