Anyway, Todd designed this quilt for his cousin's son, Cohen. He picked the fabric and designed it, and then I sewed it up. It was fun sewing something together where I didn't have to make all the decisions! I like his minimalistic style.
I designed this simple back as Todd was at work by the time I was up to this bit.
I was planning on straight line quilting the whole lot, but I liked texture created by quilting densely in some sections and leaving other sections plain. It kind of looks like the little fish are swimming through sea weed (sorry I didn't iron the quilt - we have been away on a wonderful beach holiday and I couldn't find an iron).
Todd took the pictures as well.
They were taken at Clareville beach on Sydney's northern beaches, where we used to live. Such a beautiful place! One of the days we went out on a boat with Todd's cousin and his family and the kids had a great time discovering little coves that were only accessible by boat.
I hope you like it, Cohen - sorry its a bit late!
I also wanted to share with you a couple of quilts I've come across lately.
I love how Marit paired my Skittles pattern with a dark background and organic straight line quilting (blogged here).
And you can see Jess' beautiful quilt (using my Fussy Fairytales pattern) over at Quilt Story today. The quilting on this is amazing too.
