Quilt no 47


On the Beach
My quilt is called "On the Beach", it was inspired by the many visits we used to make with our dog to beaches in Essex. The techniques used are those demonstrated by Sally Holman, where she combines nautical fabrics and hand dyed ones and manipulates them create her scenes. I have attended several of her workshops and love to create scenes of my own by manipulating the fabric and adding hand embroidery to add texture and interest.
