The Quilt Show Puzzle: "Turtle Bay" by Claudia Pfeil

Do a puzzle of Claudia Pfeil's quilt, Turtle Bay.


Examine life under the sea with Turtle Bay, an enchanting quilt by Claudia Pfeil. Claudia's quilt was the winner of the Handi Quilter Excellence in Longarm Quilting award at Road to California 2013. It is an original creation that measures 79" x 93" and was completed in 2012.


Artist Statement"To capture the beauty of the sea I have combined silk and gauze fabrics. The shells and star fishes are made from silks with hand painted designs and are machine appliquéd. The sea turtles are made from hand-dyed and printed fabric, and are hand appliquéd. The net and the gauze gives a mystical effect, a translucent look. The quilt’s border – freehand and freestyle appliquéd - the symmetrical design reminds you of the turtle’s shell."
