Today I thought I would share with you some that I created at the a
end of 2013 called"
Under the Sea"
Teresa of Kingaroy approached me to do a couple
of custom quilts for her at the end of last year
She want one as a "Farm Scene" and another as "Under the Sea" Theme
and I only had 8 weeks to get them done
OK Challenge Set
I wanted to do something a little different for
Teresa....she had given me a couple of pics
of something she was looking for or similar....
what I did know it was going to be an Applique
but I wanted to do something a little different.....
Below are some of the pictures that I took while
I was making the Quilt :) I hope you and enjoy
what I have done ")
First I looked for some cartoon style
pics so I could use them for the templates
so I was off the the Colouring pages on the Internet ")
found a lot of different ones as you can see here
once we were happy with the layout
it was onto the cutting out all the fabrics
and getting the layout down onto the center....
Now onto the Fun stuff this is where I felt like I was a Kid
again :) Colouring in YaY
you can see here that I have started to
put some detail...One of the requirements
was that it had to have a cartoon look
Teresa was very excited
to see it all coming together....so you can see how the detailing can make a big difference...here are some pics that you can see the difference ")
the turtles are just too cute ")
you might be wondering what products I have used...
for the Applique I used "Heat'n'Bond" No Sew
and I Derwent
with a textile Medium...
So after 11hrs of colouring in all the detail and getting it just right...I show Teresa and she was very happy below is a Pic of the
the Colouring all done :)
quilting...below are some pics of the
Quilting process and Finished Quilt ")
We used a light blue thread and she only wanted a simple stippling on the quilt all over which turned out to be a good choice as it made it look like it was water ripples
I hope that you enjoyed what I have done
we have a lot more Pics over on our Facebook Page
Under the tab "Albums"
look for "Under the Sea"
Happy Quilting ") N
