I loosely call this quilt art. Just for the fact that it isn't a quilt and it is hanging on a wall. Other than that? I do not pretend to be an amazing quilt artist like some of my blogging/instagram friends I follow!!
This project came about because I had an empty spot in the boys' Jack and Jacks bathroom. The center toilet/shower area has an Under the Sea theme.
I'd be lying if I didn't admit that the embroidery appliqued crab I designed?
Is based on this crab!
Hey. Imitation is the best form of flattery, right?
I tried to have a little fun with this. I wanted it to be a beach scene because the boys love body surfing and watching the surfers when we have gone to the beach on vacation.
My rule was scraps only.
At some points, I felt like I was doing a school art project.
But now, I am happy with it. It isn't a Picasso, that's for sure. But there is an afternoon's worth of work involved. Entirely made of scraps. Leftover piece of mat material cut to size so it could hide that I made my "quilt" a tad short on all sides (mat tutorial here). A frame from a previous project covered with a slate. Zero pain on the pocketbook!
Button points and talks about it every time he is in the bath....and that is what really matters!!!
