Bloggers Quilt Festival - Mount Maunganui Beach

This is my second entry into the online Bloggers Quilt Festival, which is hosted by 
Amy's Creative Side. My second entry is a small quilt that is designed from a scenic photo at Mount Maunganui Beach on the coast of New Zealand. 

I was inspired by a workshop given my Gloria Loughman and this quilt is the result. 

Some of a fabrics in the quilt are hand dyed cottons.

The grass is constructed with free motion stitching and a variegated thread

The flowers are stitched with bobbin embroidery where you work upside down and the bobbin thread becomes the feature.

The quilt size is 30" x 22"
Machine pieced
Machine appliqu├ęd

This is entered in the 
Small Quilt Category

  7. It's beautiful Heather. I didn't realise that you did this type of quilting. It's amazing. Art quilts really are going to have to join my to do list, but I think I need a class first.

  8. Beautiful quilt! It drew me right in from the linky in the Festival. I am very interested in the bobbin quilting. I've never heard of that before.
