There Are Always More Fish In The Sea Art Quilt has three appliqued fish in the same variegated, fish-scale like fabric. A unique template was made to create the fish, which swim in opposite directions. The appliqued fish are on a background of different strips of blue fabrics that represent the sea. The background is lightly machine quilted using different stitches for effect. The machine stitching includes shells, waves and sraight line quilting.
The base colour of the There Are Always More Fish In The Sea art quilt is blue with highlights of darker fabrics for the fish themselves. All three fish have a bead eye. All the fabrics are pure cotton (except for the silk rod on the left) and some are hand dyed. The thread used is pure cotton.
The art quilt is quilted onto a cotton wadding. It is ready to mount and frame. Therefore it does not have a backing fabric and it does not have binding. Alternatively, if you did not wish to frame it, you could back and bind it.
