Salmon Textile Art

IMG_6966This artwork was inspired and made from scraps from my Whitehorse Rapids quilt.

IMG_6970The salmon were sketched from a selection of images I found online.

IMG_6969I used some beautiful fabrics bought at Bear’s Paw Quilts for each section of the coho salmon.

IMG_6972The salmon were topstitched with silver thread to give the illusion on scales.

IMG_6975The back of the quilt is just as beautiful – with only the stitching showing through.

IMG_6976This wall-hanging was made as a Christmas gift to my Uncle Al – who has worked among salmon for many, many years.

IMG_6977I am very happy with the final product.

Here is a picture of a coho salmon for comparison:
