I made these ocean scenes over the past few months. I'll periodically pick on eup and put it down again. Now that I have four finished scenes I'd like to make something with them. The trouble is, I'm not sure what. Tongue Each scene is on a 9" x 9" square of fabric. Quilt? Mayyyyyybe. They just don't FEEL quilty to me. What do you guys think? The fabric was purchased at a tag sale, I think it's wool, but I'm not sure.

x2!

Seahorse and Turtle are my faves.  Yes.  These would be great up on a wall, framed and "matted" with a contrasting fabric.

The texture looks like a merino wool fabric I have.  It doesn't look 'quilty' to me either.  A patchwork wall hanging maybe or let each piece shine in its own frame.

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Every body wants a rock to wind a piece of string around.

They are absolutely stunning! Your embroidery skills are awesome, really. Hm... I think they deserve exposure - as much as possible (I know I would be showing them off to e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e if I'd made them)! Shocked

I myself like to incorporate prettyness into useful things. So if you don't want to frame them or make a wall quilt out of them, maybe...

Borders on towels (bath or dish)? On a bag? Luxurious pot holders? I don't know - but instinctively I'd go for the bath towel idea: four matching blue or white fluffy towels with a pretty blue, sea-themed embroidered border - that's class! They would so make a perfect gift.

Again, your embroidery is gorgeous. Have you been practicing for a long time? (Please say yes!) Wink

I thought of trimming them with contrasting fabric and joining them to make a wall-hanging. Framed and hanging in a group would be nice too. Whatever you decide, they are certain to look good.

I love original designs. These are really nice.

What stitch did you use to fill in the jellyfish?
