Seahorses Wall Quilt

Seahorses Wall Quilt
£50.00
Love this

Description

Two cute seahorses float in the ocean nose-to-nose, while a jellyfish floats gently past in the background …

I chose a slightly unusual colour-scheme for this scene, as a change from the more usual undersea turquoise/green/blue palette. Instead, I picked rich greens, russet and dark orange.

The panel is created in stained glass patchwork, with each patch of fabric set off by an outline of bias binding in mottled dark green. The batik background fabric looks like fronds of seaweed, and the swirling batik of the border strips evokes the swirls of waves.

The shell-shaped cornerpieces are decorated with lines of decorative machine stitching, and the whole piece is backed and bound in plain mid orange.

I’ve used some wonderful textured yarns to create the jellyfish tentacles. Toning beads and sequins decorate the shell and the seahorse bodies, and also create the seahorses’ eyes.

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 reusable jiffy bag. Hanging pole and fixings are not included.

Size: 25in (64cm) square

Inspiration

When I was a child, I thought that seahorses were mythical creatures, like unicorns and psammeads; the first time I saw a photograph of a real live seahorse, I could hardly believe it. These adorable creatures apparently mate for life, so when my husband Chris and I were looking for a logo for our little publishing company, we chose two seahorses, gazing lovingly into each other's eyes …

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 elsewhere on my shop page.
