Mermaids Finished!

June 11, 2008

After much experimentation on the mermaids’ hair I am finally finished with my quilt for the Gig Harbor Quilt Festival — and none too soon as I’m leaving for a quilting retreat this evening. Here is the final product: I call it “Gifts from the Sea” Here is a detail shot: It doesn’t show well, but within the shells are beads inscribed with the words Hope, Healing and Miracles . Maybe this will clarify The theme for the Gig Harbor Quilt Festival is “Fishing for a Cure” so I hope this will be appropriate and will fetch a good amount come auction .

I spent a lot of time experimenting with the mermaids’ hair, much more time than I ever spend on my own LOL. I’ll post more about that when I return from my quilting retreat early next week. All these pictures are clickable so if you want to look closer you can. I’d appreciate any suggestions and critiques.
