This quilt began with a small sketch made in 1989, shortly after returning from Australia and the Great Barrier Reef for the first time. I have kept the sketch for many years, and have made a new interpretation almost every time I returned from a snorkeling trip. The shape of the fish bodies and tails are a kind of fantasy amalgam of many different species. The colors and patterns were inspired by parrot fish and other brilliantly-colored tropical fish.
|Full size drawing on freezer paper
The quilt top began with a full size drawing on freezer paper. This was cut up to make templates for cutting my fabric. Some of the fabric was hand dyed and the rest is from the various collections I have designed for Benartex. The green and yellow dots were appliqued. The rest of the shapes were pieced, using my hybrid “applipiecing” technique. The quilting in the fish tails was done with the feed-dogs up, and the rest was free-motion quilted with the feed-dogs dropped.
