Goldfish

Another of my curve piecing samples quilted.


As it is rather low in contrast, it just had to get some glitter)) I bought some large gold-colored sequins and bugle beads and found a monster "gem" for the eye. I also had some white sequins left from another project, which worked for the bubbles in the water.


The look changes very much with a change of light.


Here are some views in different light to compare:

I like how the binding/sashing fabric (which I bought for a different purpose, actually) works with the seaweed here.
