Saturday Show: Under the Ocean

Hello Peeps,

Welcome to the first Saturday Show. Miss H, the Mother and I decided that because it was the first Show we should start by showing you the first ever quilt that the Mother made. She made it while studying to be a teacher over 25 years ago (before Miss H was born!). The Mother created it for an art project and won 1st place with it. At that point the Mother knew absolutely nothing about quilting.

The Mother painted the fabric. 

I'm all wet from sitting in the ocean with the fishes!

Doesn't the fish look soooo coolio?

The Mother carefully painted this funky border. She used very fine tape so that she didn't get paint in the in-between bits. She didn't know about machine quilting either so it is just stitched in the white areas where the tape was.

Isn't it a very unique kind of quilt? 

I hope you have enjoyed the first Saturday Show. Pop by next Saturday to see the next quilt in the show. 

Love From
