Underwater Quilts

Every so often I provided an E2E service for a customer’s quilt on my Gammill / Statler that reminds me of our time on Kauai, and swimming in the clear Pacific waters off Anini Beach.  At one of our favorite and secret spots we almost had a beach and reef protected lagoon to ourselves, where after a little swim to an coral outcrop you could watch Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles line up to have the tropical fish clean them.  This all took place with about a dozen snorkelers watching in close proximity.  This quilt reminds my husband and I of those times.  It is rich in color and structured so that it appears to be at the edge of a coral reef.  This quilt is to finish out at 88″ by 93″. 

I’d like to thank S. Cook for her kind words, business and especially this referral.  My business cannot grow by the internet alone, it takes testimonials and referrals, but posts allows me to share our stories and display my quality and attention to detail.  Peruse the images and commentary of this lovely work by K. Fisher of Ohio, who makes South Florida her winter retreat.

K. Fisher of Naples Florida used a pattern to create hexagon blocks and pieced together in a slope giving the appearance of a vibrant coral reef.
This quilt also has a very interesting back side where the original fabric is not cut and pieced and displays the machine quilt pattern she selected from Nancy Haacke - "Waves & Pearls"
In this picture you can see the rich detail of the quilt pattern by Nancy Haake highlighted using Omni Thread - "Medium Turquoise".
In this image you can clearly see the panel details of "Beneath The Waves" From Hoffman Fabrics
In this final image the colors are made even brighter by the dark sashing.  Thank you K. Fisher  for bring back memories, Aloha and Mahalo Nui Loa!
