Two decorative blue-and-white fish swim among the seaweed fronds in this underwater scene.
The colour-scheme evokes the colours of Chinese porcelain in this little wall-hanging, and I was able to find lots of different blue-and-white print fabrics, plus a few overprinted in silver, to emphasise the exotic oriental feel.
The panel is created in stained glass patchwork, with each patch of fabric set off by an outline of bias binding in either navy blue or off-white. The swirly lines and deep blues of the background suggest water, and the fabric I used for the shell-shaped cornerpieces is printed with a wave design.
The cornerpieces are decorated with lines of decorative machine stitching, and I've embellished the panel with buttons and beads. The border strips are created in a print of little blue hearts on a white background, and the whole piece is backed and bound in a blue-and-white polka-dot fabric.
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
Fish appear often in Chinese art, as they have strong symbolic meanings. The pinyin (Romanised) version of the Chinese word for fish, yu, also means abundance or wealth. Similarly, a popular symbol of the Chinese New Year is a child holding a carp (goldfish) and a lotus flower – symbols of gold/wealth and harmony. The carp is revered, too, because it swims upriver and therefore has to be strong and persevering.
This 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.
