Today I want to show you my work on an Under The Sea
(in short UTS) block for a Round Robin on Crazy Quilting International.
Beth and Kathy from the USA, Stefanie from the UK and Dana from New Zealand have joined me in this RR.
I have to embellish a quarter block for the 15th of each month.
This is the first block I received from Kathy.
I decided to start on the right part below, first did some stitching to the seams.
After that I added the silk ribbon and the branch on the right, stitched in a variegated perle cotton, both are handpainted by my friend Lorraine of Colour Complements.
Than I couched the yarn over the silk ribbon and made the orange feather stitched coral, also added some shiny short bugle beeds.
I painted the little piece of lace on the left to color coordinate with the branch.Than I made the whipped wheel to form a starfish and added the lace on the right, thought it looked a bit like a sea cucumber....................
At last I added the little orange fishes, charms and beads.
I hope Kathy will like the result!
