Quilt no 1


Undersea Jewels
22.5x23.75"
It was inspired by an article in a magazine from 2006 by designer Susan Purney-Mark. The fabric strips are woven together then machine stitched on to the batting. I used variegated green rayon and a feather stitch to stitch along each side of every strip in the weaving. After adding the border I hand appliqu├ęd some fish and seaweed, then added buttons for eyes and bubbles.
