And in case you are wondering, they are not mine! Hehehe! My cousin is having twins in August. They live in Florida and the predominant theme is beachy stuff. Hence the ocean scenes.
I wanted to make the quilts similar, but not identical. I also happened to have some printed fabric that worked great for the applique. I pieced the curvy waves and then quilted the whole thing. I didn't want to have to quilt curvy lines around all those little fused on fish.
Thanks again Patsy for the Steam-a-Seam 2. Works like a charm!
I had a brainwave about sharks after I had cut out all the fish and dolphins. It seemed like there was still something missing. And all little boys love sharks, right?
Love this hammerhead!
The crab was freehand sketched and then fused.
I had some leftover scraps from the surfboard fabric that my cousin bought for hand made crib sheets. It was perfect for cutting out and creating a surf shack on the beach.
I shipped these quilts out a couple of days ago and they should be arriving today. She knows I'm making quilts for her, but she doesn't know they are finished. Surprise!
