A member of my quilt guild showed me a picture of a painting that her mother received as a gift in Ireland. She wanted to make a small quilt from the picture, but did not know how to go about it. I took the picture with the promise to give it a try. The hardest part was making the pattern. Once the pattern was made and fabric purchased, it was time to start the applique. I would like to mount this seascape at some point, but for now I have put a border around it. The piece has been machine quilted just enough to hold the layers together.
