Flora and fauna
During our holiday in Iceland I took a lot of pictures of the beautiful nature. I love lupines and saw big fields with this lovely blue flowers. We also went on a trip to see puffins. We could see this colorful birds from a very short distance. When I think about Iceland I think of the sheep people use for wool.
For this quilt I used four of my own photo’s and printed them on canvas photo fabric. I cut out the parts of the flowers, sheep and puffins I wanted to use. What was left I cut in 1” strips of different lenghts. I fused steam-a-seam-light on an other piece of fabric. I placed the bigger parts on this fabric and created the background with the strips. I only used the four photo’s. I outlined the flowers, sheep and puffins and quilted the background in horizontal lines.
