Stitches by the Sea

This is the last set of quilts in this series of posts showing quilts from the Cumberland Quilt Show. The photos here are all from the same quilt which uses one of my favourite themes, the sea and life by the sea. I’m sorry I don’t know the name of the quilter to give her credit.

The features are appliqued and stitched on with a variety of stitches, which make it a work of art in itself. Notice the quilting of the water in the shape of waves. Decorative stitches of  varying lengths and widths make the applique job more interesting. It’s in the details. You may want to click to enlarge the photos for a better look at the stitching.

    • I must have mislead you, Carol. This is a quilt that was in the quilt show I posted about in my last two posts. I wish I could say I made it but I’m not that talented. I didn’t get a picture of the whole quilt. Sorry. Everyone was talking about the great stitching and quilting so I took close ups and didn’t get the overall picture.

  1. By the Sea, what inspiration for the Quilters – hundreds of scenes to choose from. These are the highlights and the best of the best By the Seashore scenery. How clever the different lengths of stitiching enhance the artistry** in the quilts.
