My Mermaid Seascape, featured far left was designed for Quilting Arts Magazine, during their first year of publication. This piece along with other embellished pieces are now available through a newly released CD.
The seascape was a pleasure to design. I made tiny clay shells for ears and used vintage silver sequins, stitched in layers for her tail. The fan on her tail is made with vintage French wire-edge ribbon. I made small stuffed velvet pods for the ocean floor and the trunk was created from vintage brown paisley fabric. The fish and seahorses were created from techniques I featured in my book "The New Ribbon Embroidery". How nice to see Quilting Arts showcase techniques from 2001!
