Koru Quilt

Here is a lovely quilt I have just finished for Marcelle,
she did this as a BOM at The Cloth Shop
in Palmerston North (N.Z).I really wanted to do lots of interesting quilting quite heavily, but when Marcelle said it is to be used as a lap quilt not a wall hanging like I thought, I had to re-think.Being a lap quilt it needed to remain soft, not stiff as heavy quilting can do.

Please click on photo for a close up.

                                                                                   I tried to give this block the look of waves.
paua shell -sea weed around shell.
the back of the quilt-paua shell.

 Here I tried for wind over the mountains.
