Octopus and Dolphin


The appliqued Octopus block.


The block after quilting


I really love how the octopus turned out. 


Just look at the tentacles. The dotted applique gives the impressions of suckers.


The dolphin




This picture was taken just after I removed the basting. The prints are still visible.


I finished the bubbles with long and short buttonhole stitches. 
The thread is a matching variegated metallic.




Thanks for visiting Threads and Patches!

  2. Your stitches are so tiny and neat they don't distract from the picture but actually beautify the scene. The clever use of fabric adds a lot to the realistic look.
    Well done!
