Under the Sea - Part 1
With the exception of my college years, I have always lived near the ocean. Perhaps that is why I am drawn to underwater art. Quilts are no exception, and I have a few to share this week and next.
This one is called "Turtle Bay" by Claudia Pfeil of Krefeld, Germany. She combined silk and gauze fabrics, hand painted and hand-dyed fabrics, and did both machine and hand applique.
I took a picture of this border because I just love the shapes - it looks like a tile frame with each tile quilted. You can also see some of the quilting detail in the corals. Just gorgeous.
Next week, mermaids and eight legged sea monsters.
Thanks for stopping by today,
