Just Keep Swimming, Swimming

I have finished my March quiltlet for the Contemporary Quilt Group Challenge.

The quilt follows the rules I set for myself using fabric from my stash which I have hand pieced.  I applied a variety of gold fabrics and hand stitched the quilt with a selection of goldwork threads and cotton perlĂ©.  
The quotation from Dory is written with permanent ink.
The design was inspired by the idea of looking up from below the sea to the sunshine.  The rays of the sun offer an escape route from the cold, dark depths but the sun is distant, frightening and hard to reach.


  1. Looks really interesting, Lis. There are times when we all just need to keep swimming but the possibility of escape sounds good.

  2. love the colour, the stitching and the goldwork really gives the impression of the sun's rays. lovely!

  3. That's fab! Have you been visiting "running with rocket" blog? Kathy is in Japan and posting loads of fab photos xxx


I really appreciate your lovely comments, ideas and opinions, they make my day. Thank you for visiting Piece'n'Peace,
hugs, Lis x
