Turtle Bay by Claudia Pfeil of Krefeld, Germany was the winner of 3rd place, Large Wall Quilts, Pictorial at AQS QuiltWeek Paducah 2013.  It was also the winner of the Handi QuilterExcellence in Longarm Quilting award, at Road to California, 2013.  Turtle Bay is 79" x 93" and was completed in 2012.  It is an original creation from Claudia.

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.
