The next block was made by Kim. She decided her 'uncomfort zone' included blue and orange. Lillian took one look at that and decided that it called for a desert island, complete with palm tree and lazy ocean waves -with an underwater scene that included a seahorse!
I added a sunset, a beaded waterfall, and some shells to embellish a seam. This is going to be a great crazy quilt block!
I was really happy with the waterfall - and I've included a close up of it. I'll include what beads/threads I used later.
I wanted the shells to look as if they were 'settling' down at the bottom of the ocean. I learned to use a dremel drill - I didn't like the way they were drilled, so I redrilled them.
