A stately turtle gently paddles his way through the deep sea, above the waving fronds of colourful sea anemones.
The colour-scheme of this panel was inspired by the copper-toned bias binding; I felt that the turquoise-blue batik I’ve used for the background water was the perfect complement.
The panel is created in stained glass patchwork, with each patch of fabric set off by an outline of the bias binding; a dotty batik in coppery tones creates the border. The shell-shaped cornerpieces are decorated with lines of decorative machine stitching, and the whole piece is backed and bound in a watery blue print fabric.
The tendrils of the sea anemones were great fun to create, using various kinds of textured yarns. I’ve added extra texture to the tendrils and the seabed with beads, and another gleaming bead creates the turtle’s eye.
A hidden casing at the top back of the quilt will hold your own batten/hanging pole.
The quilt will be sent to you cushioned with reusable bubble-wrap, and packed into a large jiffy bag. Hanging pole and fixings are not included.
Size: 25in (64cm) square
A few years ago my husband Chris and I sat in a park in Bologna, eating fresh fruit in the sunshine and watching the turtles swim in the lake by the cafe. This panel brings back lovely memories of those cute creatures! The design is part of my Enchanted Ocean collection. I’ve also created collections called Enchanted Forest, Enchanted Christmas, and Enchanted Garden – you can see some of those other designs on my shop page.
