Here is a photo of me with my quilt not long after the awards ceremony. I won 1st in Pictorial and also Excellence in Embroidery and Embellishment.
The quilt is about how the coral reefs are suffering with the higher water temperatures which cause the coral to bleach and turn white. The middle section is all black and white to show what can happen to our coral reefs.
The last section shows the reef starting to regenerate because I wanted a happy ending.
Here are some detail photos.
I wanted to include some Clown fish swimming among the anemones but they were quite fiddly to make.
I have included quite a lot of embroidery by hand and machine on the quilt.
I know that the hand embroidery was quite time consuming, and each coral section took a few days to make.
I thoroughly enjoyed making this quilt.
The quilt ended up measuring 49" wide and 31" long.
When I get a chance I'll do a post about how I made the quilt.
There were so many beautiful quilts in the show and I took many photos, so in my next post I show some of them.
Bye for now,
