I got another commission for a wall hanging, this time a family of dolphins. She wanted a mom, a teenager and twin youngsters to represent the family.
I went colorful rather than black silhouette with these, using two different marbled fabrics.
Then I made a tropical island with a sandy beach in the background and added some white caps.
I quilted both the water and the sky with wavy criss crossing lines before adding the dolphins, one leaping from the water and the others swimming below.
Next was outlining the dolphins, adding some dark blue (not black as it appears in the photo) underwater waves, a few clouds, and it was almost done. Just eye and mouth embroidery to do, and the binding to finish it all off.
