Light Below the Surface
This very dimensional quilt suggests light shining down into the underwater scene. The light breaks the surface to reveal a coral reef below teeming with ocean life. The coral reef was created by machine and then hand appliqued to the surface of the piece. Specialty yarn and fabric "seaweed" grows upward towards the surface. Beaded sea urchins, sea anemones made from specialty yarns, and hand-appliqued rocks and shells are scattered along the ocean floor.
