Bloggers Quilt Show Entry - click here

This quilt was made during a class on Ricky Tims "Convergence Quilts".  We were able to put the whole top - background and borders - together during the two hour class.  The appliques and embellishments were added after class.  The fish and starfish are fussy cut, and the seaweed were free form cut and fused.  I added bead "bubbles" and machine quilted it using metallic thread, outlining some of the background images.  You never know just what your finished quilt will look like, so there is a lot of anticipation while sewing all of the strips together.

I think I may be the only quilter who hasn't made a Convergence quilt-great job. The embellishments really make it pop.
