Given a gorgeous birthday card from my favourite Sister in law and niece, I thought I could quilt that...
So I did!
It was very much a 'work in progress'..... I originally did an eddy or swirl of water at his feet but decided I didn't like it so changed it to what I hope you will agree is something better.
The linear quilting isn't very straight at all, but I think it looks better overall now its finished.
The hanging is 45 inches tall by 23 inches wide. The background fabric is Linen and the water is made up of ribbons. The fish is made from gold Lame.
I was very pleased that I didn't actually have to buy one piece of fabric for this and that the main body of the flamingo was from a piece of fabric gifted to me for my birthday from...guess who...Yes! my lovely sister in law!
