Blogger's Quilt Festival Spring 2013


It's time for the Blogger's Spring Festival, which is very kindly put together twice a year by Amy from Amy's Creative Side.

Two entries are allowed this time and this is my second entry.
My fishy wall hanging.


It is my own design and measures 47" x 43"

I made a pile of string blocks using batiks and broke them up with some fishy and seahorse blocks.

The seahorses were appliqued and then I added transfer foils with bondaweb to give them a shimmery effect.


The fish and the seahorses were trapunto -ed to make then stand out and I pebbled the background.



I free motion quilted it on my domestic machine.


Quilted feathers in the border - I used some metallic threads to give it a bit of sparkle.




This quilt will be entered into the Favourite Wall Hanging  category.
I have it hanging in my living room and adds a nice splash of colour to the room.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog and if you voted for me then thank you - that's fantastic.
Rhianon.

Original and fun combination of so many techniques. I'm a huge fan of foiling and admire your trapunto work too.

I had not heard of foiling before but it really makes your seahorse shine! Amazing quilt! Best of luck to you!
