Quilted Sea Wall Hanging Original Quilted Picture
This original Karen Platt quilted sea wall hanging is called ‘Down By The Beach’. It is designed to be hung on the wall as a wall hanging to grace any wall in the home or office.
It brings back memories of day trips to Scarborough or Bridlington and week long holidays in wonderful St. Ives, Cornwall and months spent in Tunisia in Hammamet and Monastir. If you love the sea, I hope it brings back fond memories for you.
The fabrics used include both hand dyed and bought 100% cottons. The hand dyed fabrics are all dyed by me. One of the fabrics used for the binding and backing is cotton polyester.
The quilt is also embellished with a cut-out fish and a silky ribbon. It is machine stitched throughout except for the binding, which is hand sewn to the reverse. It was entirely designed and made by Karen Platt. The design was inspired by my love of the sea and the colour blue.
This is a one-off original design and although I can make similar designs, I cannot exactly repeat this one. It comes with an original label on the back.
This quilt measures 31 x 33 cm (12 x 13 inches) approx. A piece of handmade, stitched art.
