Under the Sea

When you make a mistake piecing cover it with fish!!!! This quilt was supposed to be a tessellation, frustrated over not being able to figure out the correct lines to cut , I covered the marked lines with Tulle, Fish, novelty Threads and Machine Quilting. All applique' applied while on my Gammill. I laid a rainbow sheer on and quilted in the sea ferns at the bottom. I then cut away the excess sheer and went back in with more thread. The fish are simple shapes ripped or cut from Novelty fabric and covered with tulle. Yes it's not just for bridal showers anymore!! LOl

In the close up photo below you will see the rainbow sheer. Lots of shiny fun to use.
