Primordial Frolics

I had fun using "prom dress" type fabrics and machine embroidery applique to make this wallhanging. The concept is a primordial sea, with all of the funky creatures swimming around.

The original embroidery patterns (ie the creatures) were actually intended for things such as linen embellishment. However, when I looked at them, I saw little sea creatures, so I ran with that idea. Below is a photo of the full project and some close-ups of the designs and some of the quilting.
