Under the sea quilt....and Taegu South Korea



Ok,
just a quickie, to show what I have been working on....seems like forever. This is the MIP( masterpiece in progress) of DD's baby quilt....UNDER the SEA. I have all sea weed on....most of the sea floor....now starting to add the little fish....before tackling larger pieced fish...and octopus or turtle.Not decided yet! Just to show that I am doing something! I have also scrapped several pages...and made base pages as well...when the light gives out for hand applique! Whoo. Just uploaded photos from our South Korea trip last year....will start to send some of those out as well. If you have suggestions..... I am open to any as to how to quilt this thing. Also if you have any suggestions about other things to add to the quilt.I am open...but it does need to be finished in less than two weeks. I think sea floor will be done today....then to the little fishes...and start cutting out larger fish...Just a couple. Maybe one , a turtle...and octupus! Just not sure. have many more little fish I can add..... Just want it to look good! I did add one photo from South Korea....taken during cherry blossom season that I
took.The blooms were gorgeous. I did enjoy seeing the gardens...and other things there. We were so lucky to make it there at just the right time. It was cold and rainy...and some of the yellow dust from China did catch us...but the trip was so informative. My dad served in Korea, and talked of rice paddies...and not much else. But the transformation was unbelievable.Technology was evident everywhere....of course in the city so was the sewer odor! Wonder if NYC has that odor also? The city we were in most of the time, was in the south.... Taegu....about 3 million people. So maybe that is why the smell was evident when you passed near the grates.Not sure. Will share more later. Must get sewing.

What a delightful heirloom Under The Sea is destined to become! For quilting designs how about waves or bubbles? I'm not terribly clever about those sorts of things, but I sure do think the quilt is wonderful.

Beautiful quilt!! I was going to suggest some bubbles as well, but I see I wasn't the first to think of it, lol.

The post from jon is a spam post ... it'll pop up a screen on your computer - don't go to the website - YIKES!

What a beautiful quilt... I love quilts, and was just given a new one from a friend for our move.
I posted a picture of it on my other blog Brush Strokes from the Heart.

Thanks for stopping by...!
