Quilted Sea Tapestry
Quilted Sea Tapestry was the second quilt I ever made. It was made for my son and his wife. I learned many new techniques while creating this quilt. I hand dyed some fabrics. I used silks, cottons, velvets, and I covered the whole quilt with tulle and then machine quilted it with metallic threads. I machine embroidery all the fish in the quilt from pictures I found in a book. I added a beaded starfish, I hand embroidery many of the motifs and I also used yarns to create the effect of sea weed. I truly enjoyed creating this wall hanging for my son and DIL.
