Shoreline

Besides working on circle quilts I also have my aerial view quilts for Voyage. This is the latest one which I completed yesterday. I called it 'Shoreline'.

For the sand I used a piece of rust dyed fabric, for the water different hand dyed blues. Small strips of scrim are stitched down with seed beads and to complete it I added a number of buttons on it. Some time ago I had bought a set of beads in the shape of shells and starfish. They came with a shank, so I had to cut that off and than glued them down onto the quilt with E6000.
Size of this quilt is 12"x17". I am linking this post to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday. Check out the link to see what other artists have done this week.

Hi, Wil. Lovely piece--the quilting adds interesting movement and one can't beat the complements of blue and orange.

I love the froth on the waves- great texture.

I love everything about this. The blue waves are masterfully pieced and shaded beautifully. The addition of the buttons and scrim add a lot to the composition. A wonderful, wonderful piece.

You already know from FB that I love this piece, Wil! Clever idea to remove the button shanks and glue the tops. How does one do that without breaking the button altogether?
