It is not the easist thing taking photo graphs of embroideries that are the same colour as the background, but I hope these give you some idea - they are all the same strip of fabric, but they all look a different colour.
Here are a few shots of the starfish quilted......
I chose a Humpback Whale as they are seen in Merimbula on their annual migration down the coast.As you can see from the second photo of the whale, it just got lost so I went old school and scanned the whale - now you can see all of the quilting!
What is a beach scene without the dreaded seagul? I did these in a medium grey. The large gulls have an extra layer of batting - a form of "trapunto". They stand out a little more than the small and medium size gulls - hopefully giving a perception of depth!
I also have added a row of buoys for the yatch race.
I have digitised some sea shells and I need to give some thought to the rest of the quilt, in particular the pillow area - do I do more boats, do I think of other beachy things to add. Decisions, decisions.........
