I started with the seagull feathers I picked up on the beach in Galveston when we went to IQA in 2005. I used a photo I took there, printed on fabric fused to wonder-under (which worked beautifully!) and extended the sand and the sky with pieces of color catchers from my washing machine that matched. Then I added light blue tulle fused with misty fuse in several triangular layers over the body and the border, and did a little quilting and a little machine embroidery. My favorite is the feather stitch used on the real feathers. Maybe you had to be there.
Size is 10 1/2" x 14 1/2"
